Comments: This is the most comprehensive, most interesting, informative blog I have ever read.  The story of this woman's life is truly a miracle.  That makes it not only her story, but God's story as well.
Comments: Nancy is a wonderful example of strength, positive thinking, and perseverence!
Comments: I've followed Nancy's life since she was a small child.  I even remember where I was when Vance (her father) told me she had been diagnosed with CF and then later when he told me she had to have a double lung transplant.  Her mom and I are friends so I cheered Nancy's many achievements through high school and college, celebrated her wedding and the birth of her daughter, and prayed through her medical setbacks.  The news that she was actually waiting for the lung transplant brought real fear.  Her wonderful blog allowed her friends to follow her progress and showed us her amazing strength and faith.  She has done an amazing job educating the public about living with major illness, especially CF. 
Comments: Nancy is a person of integrity with a strong and courageous will to live with all odds against her. She is unselfish and shows deep concern for anyone who needs her. She has been seriously ill and always seen with a smile and encouraging others who are suffering also. She will always be my hero for all she has been through and still gives of herself to educate the the public about cystic fibrosis. Her deep love of her family is very obvious and they have been there for her through all of the dark valleys. She is an awesome person and I vote for her wholeheartedly!!! She is honest and hardworking and will fulfill any duties required of her in winning this contest. My vote is for Nancy Matthews!
Comments: Nancy is an inspiration!
