Hi, I’m Ava Everhart, just your average 11-year-old who loves cheer and hanging out with my friends and big sister. I’m in 5th grade at Greenfield Elementary School. One thing that is not so average, I was born with cystic fibrosis. You’d never know it from looking at me, but I fight this battle every day. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system but can impact all the organs in my body. CF produces a very thick, sticky mucus that fills and hardens throughout the body and traps bacteria that can make it hard to breath. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the US have CF. A person is born with CF, you cannot “catch it” from someone.
My daily routine can be tough. To help clear the mucus from my lungs I must take medicines and do treatments every day. To gain weight, grow bigger and get stronger, I must take enzyme pills every time I eat. Enzymes help my body break down food and absorb the nutrients I need. Because of the mucus, my pancreas doesn’t work so well. I also must use two different inhalers to help keep my lungs clear. Twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed, I use my “vest” machine. This machine shakes my chest to help loosen any mucus that might be stuck. Once it is loosened I cough it out, keeping my lungs clear. I also use a nebulizer machine for another special medicine called Pulmozyme. Other medicines I take include: special multivitamins and a pills to increase my appetite. I’ve been doing most of these things since I was born. I take almost 100 pills a day!
I dream of a day when I don’t have to do all these treatments. My parents and my doctors tell me we are getting really close. I want to grow older and hope to be a veterinarian someday because I love animals.
