I am supporting the Courage Classic and dedicating my ride to my son Bode.
Bode was born 2/28/19 with congenital heart disease and spent the first 2 months of his life at Children's Hospital Colorado in the CICU. After 2 heart Cath procedures followed by an incredibly successful open heart surgery (ross procedure) he is now home where he belongs. If it wasn't for the amazing doctors (YOU ARE MY HERO DR. JAGGERS), nurses and support staff at Children's Hospital Colorado, he would not be the happy and cute kid he is today. They undoubtedly saved my sons life and my family is forever indebted to this amazing Hospital.
Bode will not be the last child to face congenital heart disease and my family will not be the last to navigate a frightening diagnosis. I am riding the Courage Classic and joined the Cardiac Climbers team because this is personal. Let's raise as much money as we can as all of it goes to the Heart Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado to ensure no matter what ones economic status, they will take the absolute best care of those in dire need and have the resources available, like they did to my son Bode!
