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.
