Nick and Maria have been friends for years. Maria was one of the nurses to care for Nick while admitted to the hospital for Cystic Fibrosis. Nick is admitted an average of 4 months out the year. Despite the amount of time spent in the hospital, and level of sickness, Nick decided he wanted to make the most of his time.
One day Nick and Maria were having a conversation about the various ways to keep spirits high and the mind active. During this conversation, they discussed the benefits how therapeutic writing has been to endure and overcome tough situations. From this conversation and desire to help those around them, Suzie McGoo was born. In that instance, they knew the best way to help those around them, and honor the individuals and families' fighting this disease was to begin writing. The interesting part is, the vast majority of this book was written and illustrated across multiple hospital admissions.
From them to you, let this book teach, inspire, and entertain all those part of the Cystic Fibrosis journey.
