IMPORTANT NOTE: To protect the health and well-being of the cystic fibrosis community and CF Foundation staff during the COVID-19 outbreak, the cystic fibrosis community is finding new ways to come together through virtual experiences. While we will not be together in person, we can be together in spirit and participate virtually - showing the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.

Welcome to my Page

  • Gaby and I in 2012

I have stretched myself again this year-I have taken on the challenge of participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Cycle for Life event in Middle Tennessee. This year the Cycle for Life Ride is a virtual event  in Franklin for 65 miles.  That shows how committed I am in finding a cure! I am asking for your commitment to support the mission of the Foundation. This will be my Tenth Annual Cycle for Life Event that I have had the honor of riding in.   Will you join me and help raise funds for vital cystic fibrosis (CF) research, care and education programs? I am riding in memory of my daughter who went to heaven ten years ago. She did not have CF but was also committed to helping find a cure for CF. She started her own walk team at her High School for our Nashville Great Strides Event. Please help me make a difference for all the CF patients and families that I work for each and every day! I look forward to the day when CF will stand for Cure Found!!

The Foundation has made great strides recently in research.•We continue to make tremendous progress towards these goals. Last year the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the CFTR modulator Trikafta® (elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor), which will eventually benefit more than 90 percent of people with CF. However, we will not rest until everyone has a therapy that addresses the underlying cause of their disease. With this commitment in mind, the Foundation launched our Path to a Cure, an ambitious research initiative to accelerate treatments for everyone with CF and ultimately deliver a cure. We intend to allocate a half billion dollars to the effort through 2025.

Meet Gabrielle, a precious eleven year old little girl with cystic fibrosis. She is a outgoing girl who likes dancing, going to church, and playing with her friends. Her favorite colors are purple (like my daughter) and pink. While doing everything that she enjoys - she has to make time every day for almost three hours to do her treatments.  She also has to take over 30 pills a day because her pancreas does not function properly.  Let's not forget the daily antibiotics she must take as well.  Gabrielle dreams of being a ballerina someday - let's help keep her on her toes!! Your fundraising efforts will add years to her life!
