“After decades of both living with CF and having a sibling with CF, I still cannot say which is harder…The challenge arises from the dichotomy of being close siblings but being forced to keep our distance from each other for infection control purposes…Having a younger sibling with CF inspires me to do my best to set a good example for him, and I also truly believe that having an older sister with CF makes the future less intimidating for him. Although we may never be able to share a bubble tea or a hug, we have a companionship in fighting cystic fibrosis that is immeasurably more valuable.”
