Cure Childhood Cancer License Plate

Tuesday, May 22, 2018


Gabriel Santistevan is a 14-year-old brain tumor survivor from Aurora, Colorado who has spent the last 12 months working to complete the steps necessary to create a childhood cancer awareness special license plate, including acquiring more than 8,000 petition signatures and testifying at a handful of committee hearings in the Colorado Senate and House of Representatives. Gabe is currently an eighth grader in Aurora. He completed treatment for Stage IV Medulloblastoma brain cancer in June 2014 and is cancer-free, though he deals with a number of difficult side effects from his treatment.

On Tuesday, May 22nd, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed the bill to create the Cure Childhood Cancer special license plate. Proceeds from the license plate will benefit two local nonprofit organizations who are helping in the fight against kids’ cancer: The Morgan Adams Foundation and Cops Fighting Cancer.Cops Fighting Cancer  provides financial assistance to families in the midst of a child’s cancer diagnosis, and The Morgan Adams Foundation funds pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

Like a Boss Hats

LIKE A BOSS HATS TO SUPPORT PEDIATRIC CANCER RESEARCH

These hats were designed with Leigh and Cooper in mind. The “like a boss” logo celebrates, Leigh Anderson, who decided to handle her cancer diagnosis “like a boss.” She had this tattooed on her arm and many of her loved ones have done the same.

The back of the hats include NGU#2. NGU#2 celebrates Cooper Deming. NGU/Never Give Up was a club that Cooper and his friends made up in elementary school and #2 was Cooper’s baseball number. After experiencing double vision, Cooper was diagnosed with a brain tumor just days after finishing 6 grade and passed away May 2017. The world lost an amazingly bright star in Cooper.

In honor of Cooper, we will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the hats to The Morgan Adams Foundation. The Morgan Adams Foundation raises money and awareness on behalf of children affected with cancer. Working with leading physicians, they directly fund pediatric cancer research and therapies which will improve survival rates and reduce the devastating side-effects cancer treatments have on our children. Cooper and Leigh, we will never stop telling your stories.
