The Ryan Womack Fund

$8,323 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 110 people in 3 months
It is with humble hearts that we are asking for financial support for a Public Safety family member. Ryan Womack, age 9, is the son of Paramedic Major Amanda Womack of Anderson County EMS and Firefighter Paramedic Chad Womack of the Lexington Fire Department/Deputy Chief of the Anderson County Fire Department. Ryan has been diagnosed with undifferentiated Embryonal Sarcoma of the liver. This is a rare aggressive cancerous tumor seen in children between ages 5 and 10 years old. Ryan is hospitalized undergoing chemotherapy and awaiting a liver resection. Post surgery, Ryan will continue undergoing chemotherapy with the possibility of radiation treatment. It appears this expensive treatment may take many months. The Womacks, who live in Lawrenceburg Ky, have a second child and the parents are going to be routinely traveling between Lawrenceburg and Lexington Ky where Ryan is currently hospitalized. We anticipate extensive travel expenses and time lost at work for both parents. We ask our Public Safety brothers and sisters as well as the general public to graciously assist us in supporting one of our own. Your generosity and prayers are humbly appreciated by all.

Update Number 2 : Ryan has completed his 3rd round of chemo and will go on Wednesday for his 4th round of phase one. After which the doctors will allow the medicine to work for 20 days and then they will repeat all of his scans and test to see if the chemo has made a positive impact on the tumor. And then after that they are going to meet with his primary surgeon to plan a course for his liver resection. Once the surgery is complete he will be at home recovering until he is able to go back for 3 more rounds of chemo. Ryan has had a few bumps in the road that resulted in a few admissions due to fevers. He still continues to play video games with his friends online during isolation periods. When at home and feeling well he still enjoys pitching ball and swimming. Please continue to keep him in your prayers!!!

Clinic report #1 5-16-18. Ryan did good today. The numbing cream on his port worked like a charm. He was really nervous and nauseated. His numbers are good. He is not neutropenic yet so we are to expect that to happen this coming week. Said it is always different with the first round. He has to go back on Monday for another check. His white cell count is falling already. So, in public he does wear a mask. He tires easily and family want to protect him from as many germs they can. He always tries to keep a smile no matter how bad he feels. Will post you more updates soon. Thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers and continued support. - John Shuttleworth Deputy Director Anderson County EMS, Friend/Co-Worker and Adopted Family member.

**All donations are being deposited to the Commonwealth Credit Union and are immediately accessible to Amy and Chad Womack, the parents of Ryan Womack, through a saving account that I have set up for the family under our names. - John Shuttleworth **
