The Story

Miriam, a 14 year old freshman at Telluride High School was diagnosed with Leukemia on Christmas Eve and flown to Children's Hospital (with her mother) in Denver to begin treatment. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy at Children's and her two brothers, Luis(22) and Daniel (16) are in Telluride working and attending school. Luis is currently the sole financial provider for the family, he gave all the money he had saved to his mother to cover expenses in Denver. That money has run out and in addition to growing medical expenses there are also basic needs that need to be covered (rent, food, utilities, transportation, etc). 

The family has been working with the Telluride School District, True North, and One to One Mentoring to receive support. In this picture Miriam is pictured at Children's Hospital. The school principal, Sara Kimble and cultural liaison, Ursula Cristol will work with the family to help create a budget and distribute the funds and ensure they are used appropriately. 

The Tabares family is appreciative of any support that you can provide. If you have questions please contact Ursula Cristol at [email protected]

We wanted to provide an update on Miriam Tabares. Miraim is still at Children’s Hospital undergoing chemo twice a week two times a day. At this point they do not know when she will be discharged to the Ronald Macdonald house. They will be evaluating the effectiveness of the chemo next week.  The family is extremely appreciative of all the support they have received from the Telluride Community. While it has been an emotional roller coaster for them it is nice to know there are so many people supporting Miriam.

A meal train has been set up for Luis and Daniel (brothers who are here in Telluride) in hopes of providing meals 2 days a week, here is the link to sign up:

We can't thank you enough for all the love and support our family has received. Miriam is still at Children’s in Denver and will hopefully be transferred to the Ronald Macdonald house within the week but as with any illness there are unexpected moments that come up and we know Miriam is getting the best care. We will be going to visit next weekend. Your donations and prayers are appreciated.  
Miriam wanted to pass this video on to say thank you! https://youtu.be/_nXHDWbqGIQ
