Welcome to my Page
For 27 years, I have known Sarah Boylan who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. Sarah is a delight: full of life and quick to warm up to friends. (see picture of her and Lilah last summer). Her Dad, Walt Boylan, grew up in Mt. Prospect, went to St. Viator ('71), and then Illinois! Our families are quite close. I am training for a 45 mile ride on AUG 18th, and would love to have your support for someone I know, and love. I am asking for $100. donations. No worries if you can't do it... I understand. Thank you!
CF is a rare genetic disease found in about 30,000 people in the U.S. It causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breath over time. Those living with this disease are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers, all struggling every day just to breathe and live a normal, healthy life. I ride for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Breakthrough treatments have added years to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. Today the median predicted survival age is close to 40. This is a dramatic improvement from the 1950s, when a child with CF rarely lived long enough to attend elementary school. Because of tremendous advancements in research and care, many people with CF are living long enough to realize their dreams of attending college, pursuing careers, getting married, and having kids.
While there has been significant progress in treating this disease, there is still no cure and too many lives are cut far too short. By participating in CF Cycle for Life, I am taking my ride to the next level and helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis today. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my CF Cycle fundraising campaign today!
CF Cycle for Life is a unique event that empowers cyclists to take action and demonstrate their fight in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis in a tangible, yet emotional way.
Help me reach my fundraising goal!
