Life-threatening diagnosis leads to powerful friendship for two California teens



Diagnosed early in childhood with cystic fibrosis, Emma Greene and Tiffany Senter were for several years able to lead relatively normal lives by managing their disease with medication and machines to help them breathe. But both were eventually sidelined by their condition, which can result in life-threatening lung infections and serious digestion problems. The California teens, who at the time didn’t know each other, sought treatment at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and, as the above KGO-TV segment explains, their time there led to a strong friendship.
