OneRepublicby Kelli

At Live Action News, Nancy Flanders speaks about her personal experience of having a child with Cystic Fibrosis:

I wasnít sure life would ever be normal again. That was almost 6 years ago. And while life is different, it is definitely normal….

Unfortunately, in the last few years, Iíve learned that… [d]espite amazing medical advancements that are allowing people with CF to live healthier and longer lives, many doctors tell parents that their child will live a life of constant illness and frequent hospitalizations. They tell parents that their child will suffer on a daily basis. And that misinformation leads to the abortion of up to 90% of unborn children diagnosed with CF.

Thankfully, word is spreading that life with CF is improving. And the band OneRepublic [pictured] is helping to get that message across to the world with their new video for their song, I Lived….

[The video] illustrates beautifully that life is to be lived, no matter what circumstances surround us. It doesnít matter if you have CF or Down syndrome or any other condition. Life is meant to be lived to the best of your abilities. As the lyrics say:

The only way you can know is give it all you have. And I hope that you donít suffer, but take the pain. Hope when the moment comes, youíll say… I, I did it all. I, I did it all. I owned every second that this world could give. I saw so many places, the things that I did. Yeah, with every broken bone, I swear I lived.
