Michelle’s Journey Through CF

By Meagan Moore, reporter

"It's weird to know I have someone else's lungs in my body," said 19-year-old Michelle Page.

Page, a current Silsbee resident, has recently undergone a double lung transplant due to the genetic disease cystic fibrosis.

CF causes mucus in the lungs to be thicker than normal, which in turn, creates blockage of airways and allows bacterial infection and inflammation to occur.

Unlike most people who have CF and are diagnosed with it in the early years of life, Page didn't find out until she was a sophomore in high school.

"I used to love to run around as a kid up until middle school," she said. "I never really had health problems until the age of 12. I was at church camp, and I started having really bad stomach cramps."
