Getting sick when you're a kid is no fun. You cant always do what other kids can do, or go to school like they do. Sometimes it means spending lots of time in the hospital. She sees the nurses in the hospital almost more than her friends. It can be scary, frustrating and boring. Chloe R Fernandez knows this all too well! When she was just six years old, she was diagnosed with chronic obstructive lung disease due to underlying Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD). PCD is a genetic disorder. A body with PCD can't clear its own airway secretions. Shes faced many scary moments when she couldn't draw a breath and has endured painful and embarrassing treatments. But throughout it all, Chloe has remained positive and upbeat. During her hospitalizations Chloe befriends the nurses, doctors, staff and acts as the Resident doctor on call. One of her strongest beliefs is that life is what you make it, and her most avid advice is stay faithful always. Children of all ages, grappling with any kind of illness or condition, will find both an understanding and comfortable friend in Chloe.
