Welcome to my Page
There are approximately 30,000 people living in the United States with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I ride for them, and hope that you will support me in my efforts.
For those of you that are not 100% sure what Cystic fibrosis is...it is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs.
It is NOT contagious!
There is no cure...yet!
I am riding with my team (come join us) for my niece, Jillian. She was born on May 11, 2016 with this disease. Henceforth why we are part of Jillian's Journey. The entire Cudemo/Leccese/McCarthy clan will come together to help our baby girl in her amazing journey and her fight is our fight.
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!
