In April 2017, the Ryznar family received terrible news – Leah Ryznar, their lovely wife, mother and daughter, was diagnosed with colon cancer.  In mid-April, Leah had a successful surgery to remove the tumor from her colon, and is now slowly healing from the trauma.  Thankfully, Leah's case landed in one of the best Cancer Centers in the country, UCLA, and she’ll have access to some of the most cutting edge clinical trials, a great success rate, and caring, educated staff.  Once Leah has completely recovered from her surgery, she will have to transition to another difficult part of her cancer treatment.

 Leah and her husband, JD, have built their lives around Leah being the sole caregiver for their two young children while JD works.  But Leah's not going to be able to do that once her treatment starts.   

 We’ve put together this Go Fund Me in their name for all the necessities a young family needs when they’ve been devastated by a cancer diagnosis. The Ryznars need to bring Leah's family and friends into town to be her caretakers, find quality daycare for their three year-old Donna, summer day camps for their son Gary so he can keep busy while his mom is recuperating, and all the other expenses they can’t even imagine yet, but will most definitely arise.   

 Family and friends of the Ryznars have felt helpless since they’ve heard about Leah’s diagnosis. No one ever expected anything like this to happen to such a sweet, vibrant, healthy young woman. Everyone has been asking what they can do to help and we think this Go Fund Me is a way we can all support the Ryznars while Leah beats this disease and gets her life back.

The Ryznars give thanks for your love, support, thoughts and prayers for Leah's recovery.

We love you, Leah! <3

Good luck, Leah! This dirty lowdown disease has no chance against a team of yacht rockers ready to steal away all the bad vibes. Wishing you a smoooth ride.
