Welcome to Mentor U, a zone where you can pick up advice about all things CF from people who know exactly how you feel. Why is that? It wasn't that long ago that they were teens with cystic fibrosis, just like you. If you're feeling like no one understands what you're going through, or you're looking for a little motivation to do what you know is right, drop in to Mentor U. You'll be glad you did.

p.s. Mom & Dad we have a place for you too!
