I'm Riding For

Kraig Richmond

Kraig Richmond

Kraig's donor parts unfortunately had contained a virus to which he had never previously been exposed. The doctors started him on a chemo treatment in an attempt to combat the CMV and protect his vital organs, but sadly his body wound up being resistant to the drugs. On Oct. 10th, 2018 Kraig woke from a coma that had held him for the previous week and was able to mouth the words "I love you" to his soulmate and blink his eyes to answer questions "yes and no." This only lasted a short time before the virus spread through the rest of his body and Megan was forced to make the most difficult decision of her life. She sent Kraig home to Heaven to be with his parents and began her new journey of recovering from a loss that most of us could never imagine. In 2020 of the Great Cycle Challenge, I not only ride for the children battling a life-threatening disease, I also ride for Kraig and Megan, and their unbreakable love

My Story

8 Sep 2020

On July 8th, 2009 my high school friend Megan Patrick embarked on a journey that would transform the next decade of her life when she had her first date with her soulmate, Kraig Richmond. Their bond was so strong that not even a distance of a few hours between them could dim their enthusiasm for spending time together and after a year of traveling to each other, Megan decided to move in with Kraig. After a year of living together, they discovered that not only was Kraig a Type 1 Diabetic, but he was also diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Disease! That day they promised each other that no illness could ever separate them.

On Nov. 28th, 2017 they received the phone call they had been praying for; a matching kidney and pancreas had been found! After 28 hours of surgery and a brief flatline, Kraig awoke and was on the road to recovery! He was getting stronger every day but after several months of monitoring, the doctors noticed his CMV levels were not going down.
