Katie Caldwell-Burchett lives about 250 miles from Children’s Hospital Colorado in Rawlins, Wyoming. So when her daughter, Olivia, was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 4 months old, it was not easy to access the expert pediatric care her baby needed. The family spent countless hours in the car travelling to Children’s Colorado for treatment, right up until Olivia passed away in October of 2013.

His parents, Christina and Roy, were told he’d likely never be able to walk or talk. Today, 60+ trips to Children’s Hospital Colorado and eight years later, Jaden is doing just that, and so much more.
