My name is Natalie,
i'm not like most kids. i have a lung disease called cystic fibrosis, it sucks but without it, i wouldn't be me. CF affects my lungs, digestive system and sometimes other organs. the average age of death for someone with CF is 27-35, my goal is to live to at least 50. my family and my friends are my support beams. i'm originally from Michigan. i have a really raspy voice. i'm frequently in the hospital. i appreciate things that most people don't. my parents amaze me with all that they have done and will do for my siblings and me. i'm not afraid to die, i believe that once we get to heaven, there is no pain, suffering, or sadness. it can only get better. i love making new friends and meeting new people. laughing is the best feeling. spongebob is my idol. my pain and suffering is a gift from God. i strive to make people laugh. when i was 5, i went to disney world for my "make-a-wish" trip. i love spending time with my family. i dedicate my life to not letting Cystic Fibrosis beat me.
