There are moments where you realize that while your life may be difficult, you may face obstacles, you may face illness and pain and suffering, there are others out there facing much more, and doing it with such grace.

Please visit Eva and see the strength of this young woman who is suffering, and dying, from CF. Her spirit, her smile, her ability to see the end of her life coming and choose to approach it with a loving spirit is amazing, touching and inspirational. The topic matter is sad, I warn you, but look through her postings and you will see that she attempted to live every minute of her life, that she has been surrounded with love and has chosen to send love out to those in the world who she has touched.

I hope that I can live my life, teach my children, and battle our seemingly minuscule health issues with just one ounce of the joy, peace and strength of Eva. I hope that a miracle happens and new lungs appear, but if they don't, I thank her for sharing her story and wish for peace in her passing.

OMG. That killed me. I have tears streaming down my face. What an amazing young woman and her parents should be very proud of her.

I cannot imagine that type of pain - nor do I ever, ever want to know it.
