Angel Highlight #4 - Live, Love, Breathe

Somer is one of my angels. She too lives and thrives joyfully despite having CF and our similar experiences have bonded us together like sisters. In fact, several years ago Ryan started to refer to us and another one of our dear friends, Sara Dun, as the "Cystic Sisters", which we shortened to Cysters and now that title is used all the time in the CF community!!

Somer is an artist and donates art to fundraisers for Cystic Fibrosis all over the country. Her talents have raised hundreds if not thousands of dollars for CF research. She is an icon in the CF community and brings compassion, humor, and light to the issues we face in a way that we can all relate to. She is beloved and I feel so grateful to have her as one of my best friends.

This is Somer's latest creation. It is called Sharlie's Angels. She is auctioning it off to raise money for the Sharlie's Angels medical fund. When I saw it, I fell in love. I feel like it epitomizes the miracle I am praying for!

If you want a beautiful original piece of art in your home or would like a unique Christmas gift, visit Somer's blog to find out more information! The auction is open for a few more days!!

Somer, you are such a blessing to me and so many! Thank you for this amazing gift!
