Asia Diaz is 27 years old and has CF. As an African American woman she was one of the many people diagnosis late in her life because some physicians believe incorrectly, that CF is a genetic disease that mainly impacts the white race. For this reason Asia was diagnosis late in life. She tells her story of life long symptoms. Her late diagnosis leaves her exhausted and sick. Asia wanted to have children with her husband, Danny. Even after she was diagnosed her doctor still did not refer her to a CF clinic. So when she gave birth to her twin daughters, she was suffering from pneumonia. The twins are 10 months old today. Here is her story.
