Benefit for Ellsworth area 21-month-old with CF furthers hope
The obstacles to good health for 21-month-old Ava Schutz are so overwhelming that hope seems elusive.
Her parents, Jared and Jessa, have been told the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patient will continue to take the medications and therapy she's now receiving for the rest of her life. They've also been made aware the average life expectancy for such patients is between 25 and 35 years. Even getting a cold, the flu or pneumonia could prove deadly.
