Our Cycle for Life Story
Join Our Team and Help Add Tomorrows!
Thank you for visiting our team page.
Team member Don Gouchie is one of 30,000 people in the US that was born with Cystic Fibrosis. We are on the edge of a cure and this disease WILL be cured in our lifetime.
Last year at this time, Don was on the waiting list for a new set of lungs. We did the CF Cycle for Life and 2 weeks after we were notifiied that they had lungs for Don. Don was given his new lungs on October 23rd. He has spent this year recovering and had a few other surgeries after his original one. He feels good and we've spent the summer riding to train for the Cycle for Life. We did our first CF Cycle for Life ride in Philadelphia in August. We are continuing our fight to cure CF. We are so thankful Don that got lungs, but at the same time, we don't want the kids that are born with CF today to have to do this. Help us cure this disease. We are getting very close.
Paperback Riders team has 2 other team members whose families are also impacted by Cystic Fibrosis. We are all actively working to make sure that a cure is found.
