06/05 is 65 roses day. Since 1965 the term “65 roses” has been used by children with cystic fibrosis as a way to pronounce their disease. But just because it makes it easier to say, doesn’t make CF any easier to live with.
Even after her transplant Erika will still have cystic fibrosis. Her lungs will be healthy but there will still be daily treatments and medications she has to do related to her disease.
