Cayson is a very energetic 6-year-old boy who loves helping on the ranch, building legos, spending time with his little sister, and playing baseball. His family is trying to keep his life as normal as possible since he was diagnosed with a brain tumor in February of 2022. A biopsy revealed it is a pilocytic astrocytoma tumor and due to the location, the Doctors recommended treatment with chemotherapy instead of surgery. Cayson has a port and is receiving Chemo in Durango while traveling to Denver and Colorado Springs for follow up appointments. Pathfinder Chiropractic currently provides and will continue to provide Chiropractic Care to Cayson. This helps with his headaches and side effects from his cancer treatments as well as keeping his nervous system very strong and adaptable. In September 2022, Pathfinder hosted their annual Wines & Spines Event raising over $14,000 for Cayson! This money helped his family pay for the cost of travel and medical bills. Not only did Pathfinder raise money, but they also raised Cayson's spirit when he was able to throw an entire whipped cream pie in Dr. Haley's face! Pathfinder continues to host Wines and Spines every year for a different child or non-profit.
Wines & Spines Charity Event:
Thanks to our Wines & Spines sponsors and attendees, the Pathfinder Team was able to donate over $3,100 to the Women’s Resource Center! The Women’s Resource Center in Durango, Colorado, advocates for the personal empowerment and economic self-sufficiency of women and families in La Plata County.
Free Lunch and Learns
As part of our community outreach program, our goal is to give back to the community. One of the ways we accomplish this is by catering a free lunch to local businesses and their staff. As part of the outreach program we also provide a 10-15 minute talk about how to decrease sick days and increase productivity in the workplace. Employers have reported better performing workers, lower absenteeism, increased feelings of wellbeing and job satisfaction, along with higher retention rates.

Health and Stress Assessments in the Workplace
We also offer short, personalized stress and health assessments to members of a workplace. After a brief stress evaluation survey and discussion, the doctors will assess the stress level of each person and how it may be contributing to physical ailments or symptoms.
Pathfinder Chiropractic is extremely active in the Durango and surrounding areas with many fundraising and charitable events.
