Hi Lauren, This is Lily from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Thanks so much for your blog, and for sharing your knowlege about CF. Your post reminded me of a recent CBS evening news story that featured an adult with CF who completed the New York Marathon. You can watch the clip on the Foundation's YouTube Channel, www.youtube.com/cysticfibrosisusa. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csXBIztpKZY.

Hi! My name is Anna Jones and I'm a research assistant at the Rothman Center for Pediatric Neuropsychiatry, a division of the University of South Florida. We are conducting an online questionnaire study on the nature of anxiety as it relates to Cystic Fibrosis severity and quality of life in a pediatric population. The title of this IRB-approved study is “Cystic Fibrosis Severity, Anxiety, and Health Related Outlook on Life: A Mediational Analysis.” The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship anxiety levels have to Cystic Fibrosis severity and quality of life. In addition, this study also seeks to examine the impact anxiety levels have on health utilization in children with Cystic Fibrosis. We are looking for parents or legal guardians of children ages 7 to 17 with Cystic Fibrosis to participate in this study. If you have any questions at all feel free to e-mail Anna at ajones5@health.usf.edu
