My Message

First, I hope you and your family are well. These are strange times and everyone is getting hit hard. Charities are bearing their share of the down times. If you're able - please support the cause. Now more than ever I need your support. If you find yourself in tough times - take care, stay well.

I ride for my daughter, Erica, who suffers from cystic fibrosis. In 2017 it truly became a life and death decision for her as she started down the path to transplant. On June 2, 2018 she was fortunate enough to receive her transplant. For the first year and half things went very well. She regained her strength, started her career - life was good. However, in April of this year she was admitted back into the hospital for the first time since her transplant. She had bad pneumonia, shortness of breath and lung infection. Back on oxygen and IV antibiotics followed by a slow recovery. 

She's doing better, but still recovering. As Erica has said in the past, "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. And as we're finding out, her new lungs are still susceptible to infect as they are attached to the "original equipment". 

I hope you're able to support us this year. Together with your generosity we hope to find a cure or control for this insidious disease.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
