What I believe . . .
I believe those involved with cystic fibrosis, whether as patients, parents, family or friends, fight a battle of epic proportions. It’s a battle so complex and grueling that those outside of its grasp have a hard time understanding the horrors of the disease. But every hero needs an enemy and this disease has produced thousands of heroes – heroes of the same caliber as any known to man and storybook. I believe in these heroes who battle, those who have passed, and all of their stories.
I will do my best to help them fight the fight through humor and words.
That is what I believe.
Who I am . . .
I’m in my late forties and have cystic fibrosis.
I’m married with a very brave wife and a cf-free daughter. I worry all the time about losing my insurance because without it, well, that would be a big problem at this age. So, I keep my identity hidden. Unknown Cystic is a nod to a very funny comedian, the Unknown Comic, who I enjoyed watching on the Gong Show many years ago.
Plus, if you must know, I look better with a bag over my head. CF and age have taken their toll.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I really appreciate it and wish you the best in life.
