Event Name: Heart Transplant Patient Visit

Event Description: A patient at University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora just received a heart transplant and his story touched our heart here at Denver Comic Con/Pop Culture Classroom. He is a middle school teacher in Pueblo, and girls basketball coach. He has a young son, whom they named after a Star Wars character, and his room was decked out with Star Wars things. This beloved teacher was healthy and started having what he thought were simple respiratory problems. He went into his doctor and fast forward two weeks and was being told he needed a heart transplant. Maculously last week, he received a call that he had a heart, and is now recovering in ICU. The hospital couldn't believe it; sometimes their patients are there for months and months before they get that call. UCHealth has some wonderful partnerships as the official healthcare partners of all the major sports teams in Denver and a few others up North and South in Colorado. When he was asked what him and his wife love to do, he said they are a self-proclaimed
a family of nerds and they go to Denver Comic Con every year, they just love it. We offer opportunities to sporting events, but Comic Con is really his heart and soul.

So, we're working with UCHealth to put together a surprise for him. DCC 2018 Speed Passes for the whole family, DCC swag and (if possible) visits from members of the 501st and Rebel Legion.

I can do this as well as a pilot

If anyone who hasn't trooped one of these wants to go I am willing to back out to share the experience. It's a bank holiday so other members may be able to attend.
