Thinking about Mary Rose and her family today with love.
LATE FALL, 1996
Tonight I got arrested. I hate saying that, but it happens.
I had a 40 ounce beer in my hand and one in my book bag
and I smelled like it. I was walking with my two friends, when
this cop pulls up and goes, “Is something wrong?”
We all said nothing was wrong, but then the cop pointed to
me and said, “Why does she look so sad?
I made up some bullshit about how my boyfriend and I just
broke up, but by then he had already seen the 40 ounce I was hiding in my coat.
What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe.
In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
