Video of Elizabeth Wall: Way Bigger than her Cystic Fibrosis

Since many have told me how much they appreciated the video with Christian the Lion, I'm going to do something a little different over the next 12 days or so. I'll post four videos that I think will be well worth your time. I'll put them in four separate blogs.
