      Amanda Biederman was diagnosed with CF when she was 4 years old. She is now 32. After graduating college and working as an oncology nurse, CF progressed quickly. At 28, Amanda found herself in end-stage lung disease, her job,  independence, plans, all seemed like they were being stripped away from her.

      On Jan. 2, 2019, Amanda received a life-saving double-lung transplant. Then nine months later she was diagnosed with a form of cancer called post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder. Her body responded very well to treatment, and she has been cancer-free since fall 2020.

      Now, in 2022, in Amanda’s life there is stability for the first time in a very long time. She is learning to move forward into her future, step by step.

      Amanda, we are so glad things are looking up!

      Now back to our CF Community: When living with CF, how does “moving forward” look like?

      Step by step, day by day. That’s all we can do, right? I used to think that life needed to follow a mapped-out plan, a timeline. At some point (and I can’t even say when this happened) I realized that there is no deadline for our goals or dreams. Life is a roller coaster — CF certainly adds a few extra twists and turns — but it’s an incredible ride. I’m so happy to read that Amanda has found some stability and is currently cancer-free!
