Leo's Story

Easing The Burden Of Financial Hardship

Leo' Story – Give the Gift of Time Together

Rosa and Leo's Story

There With Care supports over 1,200 families annually in Colorado. Whether NICU, pediatric oncology, or trauma, we help people that are experiencing a life-threatening crisis with a child by lifting the day-to-day obligations, easing the burden of financial hardship, and allowing families more precious time together. 

Leo, a fourteen-year-old high school student and athlete, was playing basketball one day with friends. During the game, Leo was shot in the head. The next 16 months became an extremely challenging journey for Leo, his mom Rosa, and his two brothers. 

There With Care stepped in to help Leo’s family, often being the only phone call Rosa looked forward to. And because of support from partners like you, Rosa’s entire family received food, supplies, and other needed services, helping them get through the endless days spent at the hospital.

Today, Leo is home and still fighting, but he is home, together with family. You have helped make this happen for so many families that have come to us over the past twenty years. Will you donate today to help Leo and many others? Now through May 31st, gifts will be triple matched. Make a lasting impact and give families the gift of time together.
