Prayers for Trevor Scott #TREVORSTRONG
For those of you who don't know me my name is Brittany, I am Trevor's mom and biggest supporter! On November 23, 2013 at exactly 8:59 P.M. Trevor was born via C-section at 36 weeks 4 days gestation. Weighing 5 pounds 4 ounces. Early on in my pregnancy I found out my husband and I each carried a copy of the mutated gene DeltaF508, the most common mutation that causes Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is a disease passed down through families that causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs, digestive tract, and other areas of the body. It is one of the most common chronic lung diseases in children and young adults. It is a life-threatening disorder. When I was about 17 weeks along in my pregnancy through amniocentesis I found out my son would have Cystic Fibrosis. It absolutely broke mine and my husbands heart knowing that his life would be a battle. But I have vowed to be strong and to be his support system and battle alongside him for the rest of his life.

Make CF stand for cure found!
