Nancy gives the gift of sharing her life openly and candidly.  She is passionate about people with a veraciousness  that transfers even through her web site.

Comments: Nancy has shown so many people the trials of her disease but at the same time she has dealt with it in such a positive way that it has caused me to try to approach things in my life with the same grace.
Comments: Nancy is the strongest person I have ever known in my life! While there were days in her life that she wasn't sure if she was going to make it through, she always found something positive to say or think about. I never saw her down on herself because of her condition!She is such an inspiration to all!
Comments: Nancy is an incredibly inspiring, caring, wonderful woman who through her faith has opened her life and faith up for everyone to experience with her. 
Comments: She is an awsome woman!
Comments: Her journey of hope and healing is an inspiration to me.

I am very touched and inspired by the courage Nancy has shown over the past several years in her battle with CF.  I have known the Matthews family for over 25 years, and Nancy for probably 15 of those.  As she was commuting with Scott back and forth from Pittsburgh last year, waiting for her new lungs, we were able to keep up with the progress through her blog.  As I look back at the pictures and the Love she gives and receives from her family and friends, it makes me feel lucky that I know her, and blessed that my family is healthy and happy. 

My 15 year old daughter's best friend also has CF, and is doing very well and living a very normal life experiencing all the activities that you would hope.  At some point, she will most likely be faced with some of the same challenges that Nancy has faced.  I hope that she can refer to Nancy's blog to help her face these challenges with the same courage as Nancy.  In my opinion, there is no health blogger more worthy than Nancy Matthews!!  All the best to you over the Christmas Season.

Comments: Because she delivers awareness, hope and happiness.

As someone who has suffered with asthma my while life, I cannot imagine what she is going through.  But rather than give up, she fights on, not for herself, but for those who love and support her.  Those who are selfless are those who are blessed.
