I am supporting the Courage Classic for children from Colorado and beyond that depend on Children's Hospital Colorado for vital medical and psychiatric care.
I am a psychiatric nurse that cares for patients in our Inpatient Psychiatry Unit. Colorado is in the midst of a pediatric psychiatric crisis and we are on the front lines doing everything we can for kids who are struggling and need our support.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children. My son was an oncology patient at Children's Hospital Colorado and now I get to help care for kids. It is great feeling to give back to the hospital that saved our son, Ronan. Ronan had neurosurgery at Children's Hospital and now is a happy and healthy boy. He is doing amazingly well and we have the entire team of doctors, nurses and practitioners that cared for Ronan at Children's to thanks for his amazing recovery.
Ronan will not be the last child to face a life-threatening illness, and we will not be the last family to navigate a frightening diagnosis.
Ronan and I will ride together to support all the kids and their dedicated caregivers.
Thanks for your support.
