Meet Martha Modawell – Mother of the Month for April

 

 

My name is Martha I have 2 daughters with Cystic Fibrosis(CF) and a son who is a carrier. I have been married for 14 years to my hubby Colt who is a Nurse.

About me….wow a lot I can say, let’s start with my journey of the CF world.

I had my oldest very young and then my second soon after, they where Not diagnosed at birth, they where diagnosed after years of questions. Sierra was almost three years old and Maddie was 18 months. They where so small and looked okayish… When they were diagnosed  Colt and I just felt like our world was crumbling at our feet. I became a addict, Colt withdrawn.

Finally we got it together and now we stand firm together but it took us coming together.  I have since become a Yoga teacher, & yoga therapist. I bring the healing of Yoga to my family and then to the CF community.

I LOVE sharing my love of healing through Yoga at the Mother retreats, one in California and one in Montana.

I have been blessed with  two daughters to teach me the importance of being present and knowing how love truly is the most healing power for the heart and soul.

I now teach yoga for CF mothers retreats, online for the CF community, & I do a Podcast for CF moms with Paige Dunn from Utah.   I travel to CFRI conference in California to teach yoga to those attending.   I love this CF community.  We are tiny but so mighty, and to be part of it….it’s Magical!  You truly see the darkest of times and because of it, we see the Brightest of light and love.
