May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

For the last year, I've been posting different facts about CF, and you've had the opportunity to read about Judith's fight with this disease.  Over the course of the next 31 days, I'm going to repeat some of those facts, share how you can become an advocate, and continue to share Judith's story.

Cystic Fibrosis Factoid #1:
Did you know that about 90% of people with CF carry at least 1 copy of the DF508 mutation?

We know that Judith has 1 copy of this mutation.  Her 2nd mutation is still unknown.
