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

Why do I ride?

When I was diagnosed at the age of 3 with CF, my parents were told that I would not live beyond the age of 12. Fortunately, I have exceeded those expectations. 4 years ago, I was told that I was in the "end stages" of the disease and I needed to start "wrapping my head around transplant".  That's pretty scary, but it was my only option.  In October of 2017, I received a double lung transplant and have continued to thrive. I am tremendously grateful to the donor who gave me another chance at life. 

Within a year of my transplant new treatments have been introduced that will hopefully reduce the need for transplants in younger CF people. But research in better treatments and hopefully a cure are still needed and i will continue to raise funds and awareness until Cystic Fibrosis is history.

So, please help me continue to help others by making a donation for my ride.
