What is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease that causes thick, sticky mucus to form in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, this mucus blocks the airways, causing lung damage and making it hard to breathe. In the pancreas, it clogs the pathways leading to the digestive system, interfering with proper digestion.

People with CF have a shorter-than-normal life expectancy. The good news is that as treatments for CF improve, the life expectancy for people with the disease is rising. Fifty years ago, children with CF often died before attending elementary school. Today many people with the disease live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. Getting early treatment for CF can improve your quality of life and your lifespan.

Why talk about it .. Rather make it happen !

I know what it is to be in need., and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

Olivia Woodsworth and her mom have fallen on hard times. Her parents are newly divorced and once rich, they never thought they’d be forced to live in a tiny apartment in a rough neighborhood in Bed-Stuy, NY. This new world comes crushing down on Olivia and it becomes difficult for her to adjust. Through newfound friendships, Olivia feels less alone in her new world. But will gangs, bullies, and high racial tension threaten to tear apart her world once more?

Rev./Dr. Michael Eric Dyson & Bishop Harry Jackson “LGBT Marriage Debate”

It wasn’t that he disliked talk. He just preferred conversations one on one, and then he liked to tell stories about odd things he’d seen happen, though he himself was seldom the story’s subject.
