What an incredible journey Walter made dispite of CF.
This will encourage everyone with this dissage.
Walter isn't stating that CF is just a minor thing, no it controls his life.
But he won't let CF controle his joy and happiness!
And thats why he is doing all the stuff everybody once wants to do.
Travel the world!
Read this wonderfull book and share the compelling story of an everyday fight against CF,
on bikes, steep hills, and warm friendships along the way. Go on Walter!
I bought a bunch to give to friends and every hospital should have a copy or excerpts.
Great Read. A must read for all medical students.
