The Ellcessor family (Luca, Leo, Larry and Elena) ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients.
Our son Luca has been a patient at Children's since he was diagnosed with a brain tumor January 2021. He is currently recovering from his 5th brain surgery in February. The surgery removed a deeply seated brain tumor. He has also endured 6 months of chemotherapy. There have and continue to be some difficult days during Luca's recovery. He has been courageous and inspirational through every step. The first thing he said after his last surgery was his name, but the second thing was "Si se puede" which is Spanish for "Yes, we can!".
Luca will not be the last child to face a life-threatening illness and our family will not be the last to navigate a frightening diagnosis.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children, "Yes, we can!"
