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

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.

Due to COVID-19, the Cycle for Life event has gone virtual. Each rider has pledged to ride 65 miles for CF in celebration of the 65th Anniversary of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. (65 Roses Challenge).

I ride for the 30,000 people in the US living with CF, as well as one of the most precious people in my life, little Miss Grace and hope that you will support me in my efforts.

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. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By cycling, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me and support me by making a donation to my CF Cycle for Life fundraising campaign today?

It's hard to believe we have been blessed with 5 years of good health and great adventures with our sweet little Miss Grace. As most of you know or can witness through pictures...Grace is a spunky, hard headed little lady and has the determined "to do it herself" attitude...she keeps us all on our toes and never a dull moment. She gets up almost an hour earlier everyday to do her vest therapy, it should only be 30 min but it sometimes takes 30 additional minutes to pick out the right outfit for the session. She thinks she is a superhero and has to dress accordingly (sometimes I believe she does have special power with her super negotiation skills on how things are going to go, what she is going to wear and how much bubble tape she can put in her mouth at a time.) We try to make her day as normal as possible, even though she is consuming around 25 pills each day with meals, snacks and supplements. We are impressed with her ability to down 6 pills at a time before I can even get her a drink to wash it down. Vest therapy again in the evening, sometimes with added nebulizer treatment from her friend "Sami the Seal." She takes her routine like a champ. This is just the extra that our family deals with and it will continue to be our life until we find a cure for those living with cystic fibrosis.

We invite you to make a donation and help us raise funds to support the CF Foundation’s mission of finding a cure and improving the lives of all those living with CF.

Love, Tyler, Kari, George & Grace Unterbrink
