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.

Dear Family and Friends,
It has been 4 years since my two youngest children, Carrie and Aidan, were diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. I am once again seeking your support on my 5th CF Cycle for Life fundraiser, taking place on October 3rd, 2020. This year's event will be virtual, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, although I still plan on doing a personal ride of 65 miles, to commemorate the 65-year anniversary of the CF Foundation. This year also marks the 10-year anniversary of the CF Cycle for Life event.
Because of your generosity, team “While I Breathe, I Hope” has raised over 40,000.00 dollars, over the last 4 years. The CF foundation continues to work hard to support the development of cutting-edge treatments for Cystic Fibrosis, with ultimate goal of finding a cure. I’m reaching out to each of you because of your continued support. My family and the entire CF community truly appreciates your support. I thank you once again. “dum spiro spero”

 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.

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? Support me by making a donation to my CF Cycle for Life fundraising campaign today! 



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.  


Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
