Froggy Goes Surfing





Pro-surfer giving Froggy some advice.

They said that she should go out like a queen!



So she did!













The Mauli Ola Foundation is a non-profit foundation where professional surfers donate their time and expertise to teach kiddos with CF how to surf. Salt water and swimming are incredible respiratory treatments to help loosen mucus in the lungs. These pro-surfers fly in from Hawaii and all over the US, to teach kiddos like Froggy how to surf. It was very touching to see these "dudes" get so emotionally invested.


Froggy surfed her very first time trying. The water was chilly and she got some salt water up the nose, so she wasn't too thrilled at the end. But she did great, and we were so proud of her!!!

That's very cool. Too bad we live in the landlocked Midwest - I know my CF kiddo would love it.

I wonder if the work they do with asthmatics in Poland salt mines would also be helpful with CF.
