CF Book Review: Breathing for a Living

I've recently been reading Breathing for a Living by Laura Rothenberg, a young woman who chronicled her fight with CF through a double lung transplant. I'm not done with the book yet, but have been staying up late at night to read it, so I know it's a good one!

The book is real and raw in some parts but definitely a good read and a fitting legacy to this amazing girl. I first heard of Laura from NPR through their Radio Diaries series. At that time, I was single and didn't know much about CF, but her story touched me enough that I remembered it through all these years, and listened to it again after Peter was diagnosed. I love how you get to hear Laura's voice, her cough, her humor and honest appraisal of her life. It's free online and worth a listen: My So-Called Lungs.

Anyone read any good books relating to CF lately?
