I was diagnosed (finally!) with CF in 2003, the month I turned 50. After a lifetime of health issues I am grateful to be able to be in the care of health care providers who know how to help me. While looking for information about living with cystic fibrosis, I found CF Roundtable and a connection with other adults with CF. Reading the experiences of others has given me so much help and encouragement.


My work has been in sexual health education and I have been fortunate to work with people of all ages in community and school settings. I am happy to bring my experience to the CF community and provide education about sexual health and adult diagnosis of cystic fibrosis.


Of the five children in my family, I am the youngest and the only one with CF. The older kids used to tell me that Mom and Dad ran out of the good genes before I was born! Michael Brody and I have been married since 1976. We started our journey together in Massachusetts and now live in Bozeman, Montana. He is a professor of education at Montana State University. We are the parents of Adam, Luke and Cara and grandparents to Arlo and Teddy. I feel fortunate to have a family. With gratitude for all of the adults who have helped me, I join the dedicated Board of Directors who bring you CF Roundtable, which is full of valuable information and resources.
