Colton was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) at just five weeks old. Treatment for his cystic fibrosis includes medication, precaution treatments to loosen the congestion in his lungs, an inhaler, and a precaution vest. He also is hospitalized at least once a year for a couple of weeks for what his family calls his “tune up.”
Colton is an easy going kid who loves to play with Legos, watch the cartoons Garfield and Phineas and Ferb, and play with toy Monster Trucks. His parents talk about how smart he is and how he uses his “big imagination” when playing. Colton has no problem telling others about his illness and what it’s like to be a kid with CF. He dreams of one day becoming a K9 police officer.
