This is Chance. He’s my newest nephew. He is so adorable!!! He’s always such a happy little guy. When Chance was 8 days old he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. If you don’t know what Cystic Fibrosis is then you can read about it here. To summarize its a chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. Life expectancy does not go beyond age 40. In the 1950’s children with Cystic Fibrosis didn’t live to attend kindergarten. Thank goodness for modern medicine. Our hope is that as Chance grows up, medicine will advance enough to cure the disease altogether.
I wish I would have had time to do a whole photo session with Chance while I was in Utah. Even though a lot of the time he doesn’t feel good, he has such a happy smiley attitude.
