Helping Families Live with Cystic Fibrosis

It was such an honor to be chosen to speak at the Blue Caboose monthly webinar last night!


Blue Caboose is an organization offering support and encouragement when the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis is given to a family.


Each month, a different topic pertaining to CF is chosen for their webinar, and they asked if I would speak on "How to make your house look like a home and not like a hospital with all of your medical equipment".


I enjoyed sharing some specific design solutions based on photos of problem areas provided by these sweet CF families, as well as some attractive storage solutions in general.


Listening to these families speak about the amount of medications and equipment in their homes was unbelievable. They receive continuous large shipments, and it truly sounded like a full-time job just unpacking and organizing the medications!


Below, are the slides from my design presentation with links to purchase these items.
