Welcome to my Page

There are approximately 30,000 people living in the United States with cystic fibrosis and my wife Rebecca is among them. I've seen first hand the challenges that they go through and it makes me want to do everything I can to support research to cure this terrible disease. From when we were dating and she got pnemonia to when we were living in WI and she was placed on supplemental oxygen...I've seen her fight bravely against the progression of this disease.

On New Year's Eve 2014, after 37 years of struggling with CF, Rebecca went into respiratory failure. When they put her on the ventilator in a chemically induced coma, there was little hope for her surviving. But she did survive, and 6 months later (all the while on a ventilator) she received a life-saving double lung transplant. She she is now almost 3 years post transplant and continues to work hard to maintain her health. Despite continual setbacks, she is a fighter.

Although tremendous progress has been made in the search for a permanent cure for cystic fibrosis, the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. I support the work that the CFF does because their mission is to cure CF and ensure that people suffering from the disease live long productive lives.  By cycling, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with cystic fibrosis.  Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my CF Cycle for Life fundraising campaign today! 

 

Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
