This event is benefiting 17 Strong Foundation, a 501 [c] [3}, which provides Victory Trips to young adults, ages 18-40 after they have battled a life-threatening illness. Battling a disease like cancer is emotionally and physically draining. A ‘Victory Trip’ is a vacation or experience allowing the recovering patient and a companion time to recuperate and reset while fulfilling a life long dream. It’s an opportunity to inspire hope, celebrate their victory over cancer or other illness, and begin a new chapter after fighting for their life. Since many wish-fullfillment organizations stop at the age of 18, 17 Strong aims to fill the gap of young adults that are often forgotten.
!7 Strong Foundation was a vision of Ryan Teixeira, who was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma at age 18, months after signing a baseball scholarship with Colorado Mesa University. His dreams were put on hold to fight for his life. While in the hospital for intense chemotherapy, Ryan’s nurse navigator explored wish-granting opportunities for him. He began planning a trip which served as a distraction while he endured treatment. He was left heart-broken when he heard that, due to his age, he did not qualify for most organizations. Shortly after, Ryan had surgery for the removal of a large tumor in his right leg in August of 2015. Ryan came out of surgery with the idea to start the 17 Strong Foundation, granting “Victory Trips” to young adults like him that are often in the forgotten age group. From his hospital bed, Ryan outlined and drafted the 17 Strong organization and its mission. Ryan continued to bravely battle through breakthroughs and setbacks, but on March 4, 2017, Ryan passed away leaving behind his legacy of 17 Strong. Ryan made a lasting impact on everyone he met with his infectious positivity, leadership, ambition and love for life. His passion to provide encouragement and inspiration for others has helped survivors celebrate their victories, start fresh and gain a new family of survivors and supporters. Ryan’s parents, Holly and Steve Teixeira, lead the organization today with a passion for helping those like their son who have battled this painful journey.
