Marcella's Story:(1/6/09) Marcella is a beautiful 7 year old that was born with cystic fibrosis. This form of CF effects her lungs and digestive system the most. She can have serious trouble breathing because of an especially thick mucus that coats her lungs and digestive track. This leads to many infections, endless breathing treatments throughout every single day and a ton of medication. She yearns to live a life more free from these CF restrictions. Sparrow Cash raised will help pay for a specialized "vest" that will dramatically reduce her treatments, medications and infections. Marcella absolutely loves to paint, draw and making things. She'll tell you that chinese food is her favorite and loves Tinkerbell!!
