My name is Alexandria, I'm 15, and I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when I was three months old. CF has shaped me into who I am today, and without I wouldn't be the person I am. I love every second of my life, even if there are times when I'm coughing my brains out or I'm so out of breath I can't even talk. My friends and family are a HUGE part of my life as well.

I met Lauren through youtube. I made a video that she watched and commented on. After that we started talking through youtube, sending eachother videos, and talking on facebook. We have only known eachother for a couple weeks so far, but I feel like I've known her for longer than that. It's great to talk to somehow who knows what you go through everyday of your life. Lauren is an amazing friend who has a great personality, and someday, when we're cured we are going to meet eachother. Face to face :)

It was her idea to make this blog, for the both of us to use. And I think it was a great idea, and hopefully we'll get alot of recognition through this blog. Me and Lauren are going to be making our own post's and we each have our own different font so you can tell whos is whos. This will be my font for my posts. So this will be it for my first one.

Take care everyone,
