Welcome to The Fox Tales.  This is a blog about living life as a mum of a little girl, Scarlett, who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis a week after birth.  It has taken me three years to actually start this blog, life is hectic, but I really want to be able to share our experiences with others who may be on a similar journey or anyone who might be interested in getting to know more about CF. Thanks.


I’m Sam, I live in Hobart, Tasmania with my husband Chris, our daughters Scarlett and Harriet and our dog Youtei.  I am a Health, Physical and Outdoor Education teacher who’s passion is being in the outdoors.  I absolutely love anything that gets me outside, in particular mountain biking, road riding, skiing/snowboarding, kayaking, kite surfing, hiking, running or being at the beach.  Three years ago, we had our first child, a little girl named Scarlett.  A week after she arrived (rather early), she was rushed off to surgery and consequently diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis.  This is our story.
