Our Cycle for Life Story
Clayton Douglas Himmler was born on October 24th, 2017. A week after his birth, Jen and I were informed that he tested presumptive positive for Cystic Fibrosis. The next day, Clayton was taken to Children's Hospital to take a sweat test to measure the salt levels in his sweat since those with CF have saltier sweat. Later that day we met with Clayton's doctor who informed us that the sweat test confirmed the diagnosis. Jen and I did not know how to respond, and we did not know what this was going to mean for us and especially Clayton.
We quickly started intervention that targets the two areas that affect him - his digestive system and respiratory system. We also have become advocates for him and all those that live with CF by raising money that goes directly towards research for new medicine and better treatment.
We do not know what Clayton's future will look like, but we have hope. Consider making a donation to my Cylce For Life Event Page to support Clayton's Army and all of those living with CF. With your donation, you are helping to add tomorrows!Join Our Team and Help Add Tomorrows!

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. We ride for them.
