    Laura Rothenberg is 21 years old, but, as she likes to say, she already had her mid-life crisis a couple of years ago, and even then it was a few years late. Laura has cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects the lungs and other organs. People with CF live an average of 30 years. For the last two years, Laura kept an audio diary of her life, documenting her battle with the illness.

    Michellene says: "Great for Awareness"
    "From a parent of a CF Child"
    Overall

    I was interested to hear this story since I have a child with Cystic Fibrosis. I was interesting in hearing her thoughts on what she was going through. I wish it was longer. I would have liked to hear more of her thoughts.

    It was very hard to listen to her coughing and to hear the rattling in her chest. It was VERY emotional to hear the father. I was very emotional when he talks about the first time he explained to his daughter that she was going to die. Since my daughter is only 3, this was not a topic I had even considered.

    I think every parent of a child with CF should listen to this. It will help you understand that you are not allow. There are other people fighting the same day in day out battle that we are fighting!
