My Message

I'm riding for my daughter, Erica, who suffers from cystic fibrosis. 

Erica missed last year's ride, but she had a pretty darn good reason. January 30, 2018 she activated herself on the transplant list and got the call she had been anxiously waiting for shortly after midnight early on June 2, 2018. After enduring almost six hours of surgery that Saturday afternoon, she faced another couple of hours of surgery Sunday morning after complications arose post-transplant. At 5:20pm June 4 Erica was taken off the ventilator and took her first breath on her own!! Since then she hasn't looked back. She's embracing her new found freedom her new lungs give her, but in her words, "I'm not cured from CF - I still have cystic fibrosis". She still suffers complications from CF - the digestive issues, the CF related diabetes, the sinus & nasal issues.

While Erica certainly appreciates the life line she has been given, she would prefer if we could find a cure so that nobody had to rely on that second chance - that last life line of hope. There is cause for real optimism for the future as a cure or control seems just around the corner. We just need your help to further the research.

I am participating in this year’s Ride for the Breath of Life to help support vital research to find a cure or control for cystic fibrosis. Please sponsor me in the Ride for the Breath of Life.  Any support you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
