I am supporting the Courage Classic for patients like our son Liam.
Liam was diagnosed with an aortic-left ventricular tunnel prior to his birth in 2012. The condition is extremely rare and this one of the first cases diagnosed prior to birth. He was born at Children's Hospital of Colorado and received a life saving open-heart surgery three days after birth to close the tunnel. He has led a healthy life since the surgery, which has allowed him to enjoy soccer, baseball, golf, bicycling, skiing, ice skating, and playing with his friends and family. The expertise of Children's Hospital of Colorado cannot be overstated in identifying and treating Liam's condition.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children. I am riding with the Cardiac Climbers Team for the second year to support those that have given us so much.
