Welcome to Unleash Your Story
Our site is still under construction, but you’re welcome to browse around and see what we have so far.
We’re determined to help writers and readers unleash their stories, but we have a story to unleash as well. Our story is about Cystic Fibrosis. A diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis is life-altering for the whole family. A mother of a young child with CF once told me that she faces the reality that her child is dying each day.
Of course, at some level we all are. But it’s different for someone with CF for whom a cold or the flu is major health threat. Life is better for someone with CF now than it was 50 years ago. Thanks to research funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation–treatments are getting better all the time. But families dealing CF still live on a tight rope, balancing living a normal life with protecting their children from the dangers associated with school, parties and other activities.
So, the real story we want to unleash is the cure for CF. It will have a scene near the end where a doctor is visiting with new parents. She’ll say something like this:
“Congratulations, your baby is healthy, except for a small problem called Cystic Fibrosis. But that’s nothing to worry about–we have a cure.”
