“Your Friends for Life continued to support and nurture us after the loss of our loved one. We look forward to becoming volunteers in the fall.” -spouse of a beloved YFFL patient


Your Friends for Life is a non-profit organization: news about this group is always fresh and filled with excitement. Not only does YFFL hold frequent fundraisers, we gather together patients, families and volunteers on a monthly basis during warmer months to celebrate the beauty of life surrounding us in the glorious Roaring Fork Valley. These times help reinforce the wonder of YFFL and the caring people we meet along our journey. Monthly parties have included activities such as:

  • Mini Golfing
  • Summer Pool Party
  • Ice Cream Social
  • Gondola Ride up Aspen Mountain
  • Visits to Maroon Bells
