I posted this because my daughter Lucia has CF, which causes mucus to build up in the lungs and other organs . It is a life-shortening genetic disease, but your donation could make such a difference, as therapies are being developed all the time.
When I did it I could only manage about 10 seconds before I started panicking for lack of air. I felt upset and worried that Lucia might one day feel like that. It really made me feel grateful for just breathing normally.
I would love it if you could donate, even without doing a #strawfie , although I'd love to see that too!
WHY DO A STRAWFIE?
The action of breathing through a straw, while pinching your nose, emulates the daily struggle to breathe experienced by people living with cystic fibrosis.
HOW TO TAKE PART:
Take a selfie of yourself breathing through a straw with your nose pinched (a Strawfie) and post online (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/blogs) with a comment about how it made you feel....
