Welcome to my Page

  • Please help this great cause by making a donation or joining my team!
This cause is very close to my heart.¬‚ Cystic Fibrosis has been a part of my life for 48 years. I was diagnosed at 18 months old.¬‚ Most of my life, I was very active, able to play any sport I wanted to and live a normal life, other than needing to take all kinds of medications and beathing treatments.¬‚ Unfortunately, the disease caught up to me, as it does with many CF patients.¬‚ My lung function started to decline and I suddenly faced with not being able to do the things I grew accustomed to, like sports, but even worse, I was unable to do anything, even simple tasks, without great effort, with help, or being very short of breath.¬‚ I was then placed on the transplant list in April of 2016 with 15% lung capacity and diminishing oxygen levels.¬‚ On November 1st, I received my life saving transplant and once again, thanks to my angel donor and their family, I am able to do things I have not been able to in many years.¬‚ I am able to play and do things with my 9 year old daughter, things we've both been waiting to do for the¬‚ past few years.¬‚ I am riding to help support others with this terrible disease and hope to one day find a cure for good.¬‚ This disease is even more personal for me as I have a brother (45), a cousin (27), a best friends daughter,¬‚ and a close friend, who also have CF.

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.

Help me reach my fundraising goal.
