Cancer hit me directly in 2007 when I was diagnosed with a macro prolactinoma brain tumor and then just a few months later I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. I struggled for sometime trying to overcome all over the emotional and mental side effects of a cancer diagnosis at the age of 23 years old. I was preparing to start my life after college and begin a career, but that was put on hold.
Epic Experience was started with the premise of giving back to others with the goal of being able to provide hope to all those touched by cancer including the survivors and caregivers.
I am happy to be part of the Epic Experience Outreach Team and be able to help Epic Experience grow to be able to give back to all those touched by cancer.

Matt McGhee was first introduced to Epic Experience in February 2013, after re-connecting in Denver with Jesuit High School (Sacramento, CA) Classmates Michael and Colin Ferro. From that point, he saw the positivity that Epic Experience brought to the lives of hundreds of cancer thrivers, and had to get involved. He has taken an active role in transporting campers, and getting the word out in the community. Matt works in Retail Merchandising for the Sports Authority Corporate Headquarters in Englewood, CO. When he is not volunteering for Epic Experience, Matt enjoys Camping, Bowhunting, Mountain Biking, and finding any other excuse to be in the mountains.

I’ve been a supporter of Epic Experience since meeting Colin and Michael Ferro in 2012 and have had the opportunity to observe the overwhelmingly positive impact that Epic has had on the lives of the people that it has been touched, watching the Epic community grow over the last few years. After spending many years as an IT professional in the healthcare services industry at Cigna, I’ve developed a passion for healthcare and had been looking for opportunities to contribute to the community. I am honored to play an active role on the Epic Experience team and excited to have the opportunity to support Epic and do everything I can to spread the word and improve the lives of everyone Epic touches!

My belief in what Epic does for cancer survivors started when my mom first got home from her Epic Camp. The profound impact it had on her was undeniable; she had so much more hope, positivity, and desire to live despite what an oncologist had told her just months before. I knew this was a cause that would change lives, and I immediately felt compelled to help. My hope is that I can make a small impact by reaching others and increasing awareness through the sports of running and triathlon. Running was always one of the things my mom did to live her life fully, and I’m no different.
I currently work as an engineer in the spinal device industry, where my passion is helping others to move and live in a pain free, fulfilled way. In my spare time, you can find me training for triathlons, marathons, or Ironmans, but I want to help in any way I can to get Epic’s message out in the world.
- Timothy Ryan"Sharkbait"I first became acquainted with Epic Experience while attending a Blood Cancer of the Rockies conference in Denver. I was finishing up my treatment for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in the Spring of 2013. I was learning about what resources and opportunities were available to me as both a cancer survivor and a young professional. I met Nancy, and her contagious optimism and excitement about her newly founded Epic Experience camp was palpable. As a lover of outdoor activities, I immediately signed on as a participant in the inaugural summer camp that year. It was the best decision I could have made. I have stayed actively involved with Epic because of the people, the message, the mission, and the need for support with this terrible disease.
