Lily loves spending time with her family and friends in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, at the family cottages on Lake Michigan, in the rainforest of Costa Rica and playing on the water at Shelter Island.
Lily is active… being so is part of the CF wellness protocol. She spends most of her time outdoors engaged in various sports & activities. Exercise is extremely important for lung health.
Lily skis, rides horses, plays lacrosse & field hockey, waterskis, surfs & rides roller coasters at Michigan Adventure. Does riding roller coasters count as exercise? Probably not. However, screaming at the top of ones’ lungs definitely gets the tiny airway sacs of the bronchioles fully engaged.
Singing has a similar effect on the lungs…. movement. Vibrations create muscle, from muscle comes strength. And with strength comes the ability to work through some of the glitches that come with the CF disease.
