"Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of three, Mallory Smith grew into a determined, talented young woman who inspired others even as she raged against her illness. Despite the daily challenges of endless medical treatments and a deep understanding that she'd never lead a normal life, Mallory was determined to "live happy," a mantra she followed until her death. Mallory worked hard to make the most of the limited time she had, graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford, becoming a CF advocate, and embarking on a career as a writer. Mallory recorded her thoughts and observations, including the struggles and feelings she found too personal to share during her life, for more than ten years, leaving instructions for her mother to publish her work posthumously. She hoped that her writing would offer insight to people living with, or loving someone with, chronic illness."--
