Fly Away Little Bird

Just a note to for those who knew her, or those who never had the pleasure...

Jenn, a fellow CFer waiting for a double-lung and liver transplant up in Mass., passed away yesterday morning after an unexpected decline. She was a very cool spirit whose kindness and generosity is demonstrated in her final wish to have her own body donated to CF research. I think it says so much that a young woman in her late 20s would be so gracious as to think of others when planning her last requests. Reading Jenn's story, and knowing her these past months, I can only say that she was an inspiration to all of us considering transplant -- she fought through many complications and uncertainties without ever allowing that struggle to eclipse her own light. So fly away, rest peacefully, and breathe easy friend. And whatever comes next, I hope your journey is a good one.

Please keep her family and loved ones in your thoughts right now.
