Are you a CF kid? You're not alone

When Tim Sweeney was (much) younger, he wished he had a book like this to help him navigate the ups and downs of having cystic fibrosis. Tim was born with cystic fibrosis at a time when there wasn't a lot known about it.

Throughout Tim's life, he has faced challenge after challenge and never gave up. As a result, Tim has learned all of the tools he uses to be a CF Warrior everyday. Tools such as exercise, good eating habits, compliance with breathing treatments and medications, and having the right mindset. Just like a superhero, Tim relies on his family, friends, and doctors to help, but he also relies on himself.

In Diary of a CF Kid, Tim teaches the life lessons he's learned, such as trust, self-esteem, integrity, courage, and many others, to help be a CF Warrior who is winning daily battles. Tim's mission in life is to live with health and happiness. Living with CF has many challenges and it helps to be inspired by someone who has seen every stage of CF including 3 life saving surgeries (and even managed to run a marathon less than year after his double lung transplant).

Tim has been a personal trainer for over 20 years with a wife and 3 boys. Let's face it, a lot of kids find reading too boring and not as exciting as an iPad. Diary of a CF Kid is told in the entertaining Diary of a Wimpy Kid style with funny sketches and stories that will make you laugh, engage, be inspired, and learn. Tim's diary also brings to life important topics for a CF kid. Each diary entry focuses on a new value with examples that include historical figures such as Helen Keller, the Wright Brothers, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and many others. Tim also uses his own experiences to teach valuable lessons that have made a huge impact on his life. Learning from such real life heroes will inspire CF kids to live a life with health and happiness.

This book is for a CF Kid. It is also for the parents of a CF kid who want to know how their kid experiences the world. How do CF kids perceive CF? What are the fears and hopes of a CF kid? What are some of the values that are important for a CF kid to practice daily?

Perfect as a bedtime story, neatly divided into small sections, Diary of a CF Kid is a one-of-kind book for CF kids.
