Doernbecher Freestyle XIX

Discover what happens when you defy the impossible.

We had the honor of attending The Doernbecher Freestyle XIX collection unveiling and auction, one of the most life-changing experiences we have ever been a part of. The children, families, and doctors who make everything possible are nothing short of amazing. To highlight this incredible night, we sat with some of the many doctors who help these kids throughout their journey. ⁠
