Domestic Violence Hero becomes Victim
Because of Ryan's natural instinct to protect a female, he was assaulted and took the brunt of this man's anger and rage onto himself. We can all hope to have a truly good person around to protect us like he did for this stranger in need. Ryan was rushed to the hospital and put into surgery immediately. The first of many to come. The bullet shattered his left femur and severed his femoral artery. To date, Ryan has undergone 3 surgeries to his left and right legs to reconstruct along with adding a rod in place of the bone he lost. Although the initial injury was in the left leg, the right one was needed to share the artery and return blood flow. Because of the trauma to his body, Ryan was entirely swollen and unrecognizable when his parents could finally make it out from Massachusetts to be by their son's side. To make matters worse, he has also developed a blood clot in his knee and had an allergic reaction to the nickel in the hundreds of staples in both legs. This will be a long road to recovery for this HERO.
Ryan is a salesman, and if you don't know him personally you can tell within the first few minutes of talking with him. He has a huge personality and is full of life. If he can't make you laugh then no-one can! This incident happened the night before he was to switch jobs and therefore he didn't have active health insurance at the time like many of us can relate to.
We are asking for donations to help Ryan pay for hospital bills, and also pay his rent and utilities. Every penny counts and is appreciated. Let's help this local HERO through this difficult time.
( and if you're wondering about the kid that shot him? He's in jail on $100,000 cash bail where hopefully he stays for a very long time to come! )
we took off your comments because we don't need a dispute.. it is counterproductive. please stop commenting and move on. our family is suffering enough

If you know Ryan then you this is unimaginable. He will go out of his way to make any person smile. His amazing attitude and outlook on life really is contagious. He did not deserve to have reconstructive surgery but risked his life to save a woman in danger. To you Ryan my best friend. I will be contributing a pretty decent donation soon. The world needs more Ryan Doyle's to keep us smiling and knowing there are people to stand up for our beautiful women instead of turning away!
