Publisher's Summary

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. Producer Joe Richman gave Laura a tape recorder. Laura kept an audio diary of her battle with the disease and her attempts to lead a normal life with lungs than often betrayed her. Laura died on March 20, 2003.
