The power of perseverance

Today, Isabel is breathing well, and she is happily entering her mid-40s. She does yoga on a regular basis to help alleviate her muscle aches and pains, as well as acupuncture to help her gastrointestinal tract move. She also swims and plays the bagpipes in dedication to her lung donor and in order to keep her lungs open and healthy. “I speak regularly about CF and organ donation—this narrative therapy has been so validating. I pray regularly and practice mindfulness so my own thoughts do not add to my suffering” she said.
