I am riding in the Courage Classic in honor of the tens of thousands of children who have had life-threatening illness treated in our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit since I came to Children's Hospital Colorado 20 years ago. These children and their families have exhibited incredible resilency in the face of terrible adversity. Their challenges and those of future patients drive us to continually improve upon the care we provide. We do this by constant improvemnet of our processes of care, learning from every patient through an ever evolving and internationally recognized research program, and a committment to train the next generation of caregivers and leaders. Please help enhance our mission by donating to our cause.
