Miracle Monday: Lizzy Sue

Happy #MiracleMonday!

Let’s start this Monday off by getting to know Lizzy Sue. She is six years old and was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at two weeks old. Daily treatments for cystic fibrosis take time, patience and persistence. Each day, Lizzy Sue completes about two and a half hours of breathing treatments/therapies, 30 minutes of physical therapy in her “vest,” and takes three different inhaled medications and over 20 oral medications. Through everything, she keeps a smile on her face and works to power through any obstacle she faces! Read below to get to know more about Lizzy Sue.
