  • Breathing easier

    After years of struggling for each and every breath, Cara Brahm got new lungs and a new lease on life on Sept. 8 — two days before her 38th birthday.
    She had been on the waiting list for an organ donation for 11 months.
    "Progressively I got worse with my breathing and my oxygen level. [My] lung function was dropping ... a lot of chores, I just had to stop doing," Brahm said.
    Brahm was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was 10 years old and as it continued to take a toll on her lungs, even simple acts like getting dressed required help.

  • Learning from dogs

    My wife and I have two dogs, one is named Charley, and the other is Bella. Charley is a mixture of Lhasa lapso and something else, and Bella is a full-fledged Pomeranian that we rescued from a bad situation. We were not quite sure what would take place when we got Bella, she was so scared and stayed to herself the first day or two here. But it wasn’t long (maybe the third day) that Bella opened up and let us see how much fun she was going to be. They have both been a joy to have and make up a very important part of our home life.
