The Imus Ranch in Ribera, New Mexico, is an authentic cattle ranch which offers unforgettable experiences for children who suffer from cancer and severe blood-related diseases. This is also a great place for children who have lost their siblings because of SIDS to come and have fun while socializing with other kids. Talking about the ranch, Don Imus said “Our objective is to restore their dignity and confidence by treating them as normal, healthy children, giving them real work to do“.
