I ride to give hope to Children's Hospital Colorado patients like Emma and Leo.
When Emma was born, she developed many health complications and is currently under the care of multiple specialists at the Colorado Children’s Hospital. Emma has many diagnoses caused by a neurological disease called Dysautonomia. This causes dysregulation in the body’s autonomic nervous system which caused Multi-systemic complications. Emma is a unique child with so many beautiful qualities. She enjoys art, music, playing with animals, and has a great sense of humor. Emma also has such a beautiful empathetic soul for all creatures. She enjoys volunteering in any way she can to help the planet, people in need, and animals. She is a strong 6-year-old child who has a passion and love for life.
In 2017, Leo was diagnosed with aplastic anemia, a rare and serious condition that occurs when the bone marrow is damaged and stops producing enough new blood cells. Leo would need a bone marrow transplant to survive. His body rejected his first transplant using his sister’s cells, but doctors tried again using stem cells from his mother. Thankfully, the second transplant was successful, and Leo’s ability to make new blood cells was slowly restored. Leo’s family credits the outstanding care he received from Children’s Hospital Colorado for his recovery.
Thanks for your support
