I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients like the ones I see everyday in the clinic.
Cancer is a unsightly word with a scary meaning, that we all hope never has to be a part of our life. For the Tompson Family that became a reality for Ellis before he was even a year old. Before the age of one Ellis was diagnosed with Pre-B ALL, or acute lymphoblasic leukemia. They have been faced with many challenging times in the years of therapy that Ellis has bravely undergone. Ellis' laughter has filled our halls and melted our hearts every time he has been in clinic. His tears have also filled our halls and brought heartache to us all. Watching a child fight cancer will change your life, and the change it brings to a family is far greater. Ellis is now off therapy and a very happy 3 year old, and we still enjoy seeing him and his sweet family in clinic for a check up once a month.
