Beschreibung

The day-to-day dealings of life as a cystic fibrosis patient are described through a series of flashbacks to a time when the author was an 18-year-old volunteer at cystic fibrosis overnight camp. From diagnosis to death, this book leaves no aspect of CF untold as it includes a description of the illness; a comprehensive discussion of who gets the disease and why; an explanation of the procedures involved in diagnosing the disease; coverage of the arduous daily therapies involved in maintaining the life of a person with cystic fibrosis; and, now that people who have CF are living longer because of available therapies, the new challenges of dealing with CF-related diabetes as well as making decisions regarding lung transplants are all covered.

Pressestimmen

A solid introduction to the disease...A plethora of stories accompanies each chapter...Young adults with the disease will feel a part of a worldwide community after reading this book. There is optimism as well as sadness here, but most of all there is the resonance of CF sufferers' voices telling others, 'You are not alone.' School Library Journal, 10/1/2006 ...this great resource gives extensive medical and technical information as well as profound insight in the disease's human impact...this entry offers excellent research information for patients, families, and students. Its additional pages, however, provide even greater depth. Gripping personal accounts will pull in readers, teenage and adult, who are not familiar with the disease. VOYA
