The Importance of Education

I have been meaning to e-mail you since Claire started Kindergarten to let you know how helpful the CFRI booklet "Cystic Fibrosis in the Classroom" was for us. I gave a copy to her teacher, the school principal, the school nurse, and the district nurse to read before we met to set up her 504 plan. I also used a folder I received from the last CFRI conference by Lisa Yourman on what to put in a 504 plan. It was a great help to have the resources to guide me through the process. Setting up her 504 plan went without a hitch! Claire's teacher, school administrators, and nurses were extraordinarily kind and have been willing to help us in any possible way. Thanks so much for all the great work you do at CFRI. Having resources like this makes such a tremendous difference, and I really appreciate all you do.
