The Spider Who Never Gave Up

A student in my mom's class has a cousin with CF- his name is Travis and lives in Ohio (not far from my family). This amazing kid wrote a childrens book at 8 years old called "The Spider Who Never Gave Up" which is inspired by his goal to never give up the fight against CF!
This book is a way for Travis to encourage other kids to never give up on their dreams, no matter how bad life gets...Not to mention, he's giving some of his proceeds to the CF Foundation, Cancer Society, and Make-A-Wish Foundation!
This guy deserves a big shout-out from one CFer to rock Travis :)

Hi Emily!! I just read your comment you left on my blog! I'm so glad you found me. Like you, I love to find CFers who have such strong faith in our Lord and actually use our disease to show how faithful and powerful God can be. I look forward to reading your blog and keeping in touch! I noticed from one of your latest posts that your doctor is at USC. Not sure if you know from reading my blog yet, but I had my transplant at USC. I know the pulmonary doctor I had when I was there has since left (he moved to AZ), but I'm sure some of the same people might be??? Although they may be just transplant and not CF (not sure how things work there). Anyways...Thank you again for finding my blog and for always trusting the Lord throughout our struggles with CF. I hope you are doing well! (I plan on reading more of your blog when I have time). I'm awake in the middle of the night right now because I've slept so much the last two days :) Oh yea...if you don't mind, I'm going to add your blog to my blog list on my site.
