Each year at our Mothers Retreat for mothers of Cystic Fibrosis children we get to meet some awesome moms. These mothers give us at CDBF fortitude, and the lasting friendships are so close to our hearts. Meet Paige Dunn from Utah, our March Mother of the Month.
Paige tells us her story.
We have been blessed with two beautiful babies, both who have CF. Aila was diagnosed at 3 weeks from the newborn screen and Wyatt was diagnosed at 1 week from a cord blood test.
Although this isn’t the path I imagined we would walk it has been such an extraordinary one. Extraordinarily hard but extraordinarily gorgeous! My sweet children have taught me to be present, to enjoy every moment and give love.
My personal spiritual/mental battle
with Cystic Fibrosis as a caregiver has opened my soul and allowed me to blossom in ways I didn’t know possible. The mothers retreat was a catalyst for my learning and understanding which is why I feel called to be involved with supporting my fellow CF Moms and why Martha and I have started a podcast just for CF Mothers!! The first episode of the “CF Mom Tribe” podcast will air next week! Watch for details.
