A mother posts a controversial video, but it really isn't-people are just unaware of the truth behind it.
Samantha remembers the day when a nurse told her that her baby had cystic fibrosis. She felt like her world was ending.
Unfortunately, there is no cure to this illness. Its impacts of the illness on the pancreas and lungs indicates that there is a shorter life expectancy.
In the beginning, things were very difficult for Samantha, her spouse Rob, and her daughter Grace. But they got used to it.

Daisy needs to have probiotics two times each day, salt replacement two times each day, vitamin E one time each day, and multivitamins one time each day.
She has physiotherapy twice in a day and each week she is weighed. Every other week, there is a team that checks her at home and they bring her to the hospital every month.
Ever since she found out about her daughter's illness, Samantha has been doing everything she could to increase awareness and funds so they can find a cure.
When she made a Facebook Live video, she was demonstrating the ways to clear Daisy's lungs from mucus, which she does every day.
This technique means lightly yet firmly hitting the baby, who looks undisturbed and used to this. Unfortunately, people who don't know any better said that she was hurting her baby.
The video was viewed hundreds of thousands of times, with lots of individuals showing their support and love, even though some were showing their anger.
Besides the judgmental comments, they have also gotten death threats. Yet, instead of going down with the stress, Samantha is stubborn that she won't let the trolls get the best of her.
She used this hate by going on news sites and channels to demonstrate the truth in her video coverage.
Samantha says that it may be surprising if you really do not know the reasons. But this is not surprising for parents who have kids with cystic fibrosis. This prevents lung damage.
Because of what she went through, hundreds of individuals went on her post to let her know she is being supported. Samantha has reciprocated as well.
Samantha has currently put up a fundraiser page to raise funds for cystic fibrosis. Hopefully, it can help find a cure to it and also educate others at the same time.
