I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients like Daniel.
Daniel is battling brain cancer. In the last three years, the teenager has had six brain surgeries and 48 days of radiation. That’s 48 days and more that cancer has stolen from his childhood. For kids like Daniel, new therapies and the possibility for a cure cannot come soon enough. He courageously rode alongside his family and teammates in the tour last year to raise money for Children's Colorado patients like him.
Daniel will not be the last child to face a life-threatening illness and his 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.
I have worked at Children's Hospital Colroado and in the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders for 11 years, and have spent 13 years of my nursing career in pediatric oncology. What an incredible honor it is to get to ride for these kids and raise funds to directly support them.
