Ryan’s Ulcerative Colitis

This was my brother Ryan a few months back, at the age of 15. After over a year of being in and out of the hospital we finally learned he suffered from Ulcerative Colitis, a chronic, inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation in the digestive tract. He had to go through 2 surgeries to finally get back to good health, but the insurance company didn’t cover everything. The remaining $78,655.40 took a big toll on my family. Leaving my mom no choice but to soon file for bankruptcy. Without these surgeries my brother would’ve lost his life. Ryan is my best friend and my little brother. I am thankful everyday that he is here and healthy, but this financial toll on my family is no longer bearable. Any amount will help. Thank you so much.
