I'm extremely proud to be riding in the 35th El Tour de Tucson, taking place on Saturday, November 18th, on the Beads of Courage Cycling Team. Beads of Courage helps more than 60,000 children in eight countries record, tell and own their stories, using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage and hope along their treatment journey. Beads of Courage is a wonderful, non-profit, organization that has made a difference in the lives of many children, including our beautiful daughter Phoebe Sallyann Regan. Phoebe was born with a very rare chromosome disorder, which we believe was the cause of a very rare children's interstitial lung disease, heart defects and various other health issues. Beads of Courage was there for us, serving as inspiration, during Phoebe's hospital stays. Phoebe's big sister, Hannah, was also touched by Beads of Courage. Hannah had a difficult time seeing her baby sister in the hospital and missing her at home...all she wanted was to hold her and make her better. The Beads of Courage sibling program helps the siblings of sick children find purpose, comfort and strength. Hannah received various beads in the mail while Phoebe was in the hospital and even after she passed away. These beads help the children share their stories and feel proud of what they have battled and won. In Phoebe's case, she lost her battle...but we will always remember the kindness, support and smiles that were given to us from the Beads of Courage team. Please donate! Let's keep this organization strong and growing so they can touch the lives of MANY other children and families. With Love, The Regans
