There Are No Alligators in Heaven! A Family’s Perspectives on Surviving the Unrelenting Savagery of Cystic Fibrosis – Jennifer Hale with her parents Donna and Evan Michael Codell, ©2017 (ISBN 978-0-9908547-2-2)
Jennifer Hale defied the odds. When she was born with cystic fibrosis (CF) in 1972, the average life expectancy of individuals with CF was 15 years. But Jennifer lived to see her 43rd birthday before she passed away in December 2015 (while waiting for a lung transplant). After she died, Jennifer’s parents – Donna and Evan Michael Codell – decided to tell the story of Jennifer’s life so that people could meet Jennifer and come to appreciate the very special qualities she embodied.
