Hello folks,
My dear 27 year old son w/ CF, CFRD CFRLD has recently planned to move to LA. It is probably for the better because we don't have a CF center here where we live and he was still seeing his pediatric specialists. I would love to hear what anybody has to say, however, about the CF Center at University of Southern California Medical Center. ANYBODY?
We are really flying blind in that we don't know anything at all about it.
Thanks in advance!

Is this Lilly from Elpaso, I spoke to you many many years ago, I live in Ohio but lived in Elpaso in 2003 and 2004. My son Andrew who is now 33 moved to LA 9 years ago and goes to USC Keck medical cf center. They are wonderful, his doctor is Dr. Rao. If you have any questions I can have Andrew contact you or your son. Happy Holidays Cindy in Ohio

Hi Lilly! I remember you. Boy, it was a long long time ago! Glad to hear he is ok and that you like Dr. Rao. That will be my son's dr. too. Quick Question: Do you know or can you ask your son if there are any programs in California that help with co-pays? I wish we could get him Medi-Cal, but that unfortunately isn't a possibility since he is a student. If he would know or could direct me to somewhere that I could ask, that would be awesome. Thanks for answering! Happy Holidays to you too, Libby
