Colors of Courage

Welcome to the COLORS OF COURAGE Team Page! We are participating in Pink Vail on Saturday, March 24, 2018 to support our local cancer center and we need your support!

Our team is named COLORS OF COURAGE as the Spirit of Survival Program funded by PinkVail supports ALL CANCER PATIENTS at Shaw coupled with the Shapiro/Stoffel Family and their friends have been touched by several different types of cancers -- breast, lung, pancreatic, lymphoma, prostate, testicular to name a few.  Each type of cancer has its own COLOR ribbon; hence our team skis/rides in a rainbow of colors.  You can check out the photos to see them and look for the picture of the chart depicted which color represents which cancer.

In addition to chemotherapy and radiation services at Shaw, Lisa & Big T (her father-in-law) received a range of adjunctive supportive care ranging from nutritional counseling, rehabilitative exercise programs, and massage and acupuncture to relieve treatment side effects.  Tom, the best caregiver ever! also got to participate and benefit!  Insurance does not cover these beneficial services.  These services are provided free of charge thanks to the funds raised through PinkVail.  For me details, please read Lisa's PinkVail webpage at

Join our team! You don't have to be a skier/boarder to join the team, there are many ways to participate with us. Costume contest, entertainment and fun will take place at Pink Vail Headquarters located at the base of Vail Mountain at Golden Peak.

Shaw Cancer Center is a fully accredited cancer treatment and comprehensive breast center in Edwards, Colorado. It is rare for a rural, resort town to provide such comprehensive care, and, truly, Shaw exists because of generous donors, passionate volunteers and talented clinicians who are dedicated to restoring the health of their cancer patients.
