When I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, I had access to state-of-the-art treatment that increased my survivability. Treatment for adult brain cancer is advancing at a rate nowhere near what is available to children. More needs to be done for pediatric patients. At Colorado Childrens Hospital, a world-renowned neuro-oncology research center, they are working tirelessly for tomorrow's cures.
As an adult, I was able to handle the treatment that proved to be successful. For children like my little friend Jake, and other children I met over the six weeks in radiation, their childhood was taken away from them. Paw Patrol and knock-knock jokes was our connection. I'd make them laugh, but leave with a feeling I wanted to do more than just think about own my health.
MY GOAL IS TO RAISE $25,000 to support research, and clinical care for children. Life is precious, and children like Jake fighting for his life need more help, and the children that will follow Jake with this type of devastating news
Research Riders is a bike team of volunteers, riding over 100 miles to reach a goal of $500,000. All funds go directly to finding treatment and cures for pediatric brain cancer, right here at Colorado Childrens Hospital. Any dollar amount will make a difference for current research, and tomorrows cures, helping children with brain cancer survive and live longer.
