Ryan Blair's warriors-FightCancer

I started this fundraiser to raise  money to help support my big brother Ryan, his girlfriend Ayla and our families in the fight against his brain cancer called stage 4 Glioblastoma. It's now May 19th and the amazing out pouring of love and support for my brother makes tears in my eyes every day. This is for him, my first best friend & forever big brother.
Ryan started having headaches a few weeks before Christmas. He had recently got a promotion at work and with the extra work load everyone thought it was stress and his regular sinus headaches. On Christmas eve he went to emerge and was sent home again with Tylenol. Dec 27th he was admitted to the hospital and late that night was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.... Early Dec 28th my parents caught a flight to my brother and a few hours later I did too. We all spent countless hours at the hospital with him, sleeping in chairs, on floors, until he could get his own private room where Ayla slept in bed with him every night. My brother is an amazing person and because of that his wonderful friends spent many hours massaging his cramped muscles while he was stuck in bed at the hospital. We spent New Years eve and New Years day in the hospital and wouldn't have thouht twice about it because again HE'S AMAZING. Thanks to amazing family and friends we had our own little get together in the hospital earlier that night before Ryan got too tired.
On January 2nd the doctors allowed my brother to go home under the care of his girlfriend and our families. They live in a two bedroom basement apartment and have been through a lot together over the years. They had been saving for a house for a long time but with life's struggles it was put on hold for awhile. They PUT AN OFFER IN ON A HOUSE A FEW WEEKS AGO and thank goodness their offer has been accepted! Definitely an amazing and nerve wrecking step but it will make a huge difference to their quality of life
They are two people who are truly meant to be together and truly above and beyond deserving of all the love and support they are getting from family, friends, "strangers" with a big heart & let's not forget the love and cuddles from furbabies. Their love is something some people only dream of having. On January 5th we received the results from the biopsy he had on the 28th...it is cancer. Not only is it cancer but its a very rare form. Some days later the doctor diagnosed him with a stage 4 Glioblastoma. If it had been kidney or liver etc etc there would have been an immediate line up of people asking to be tested to see if they're compatible because that would be what Ryan would do for any one of his family and friends. My brother is an amazing, caring, give you the shirt off his back kind of guy. Growing up I would hear friends complaining about their siblings and how much they fought or didn't get along but I didn't have that with my brother. We were always close and he always had my back. As I got older and my brother started going through rough times I had his back. We hung out all through school and we were always great friends. For a birthday gift he tattooed the symbol for sister on his arm so we always remembered we are never alone. We call it sitherhood; a great combination of brother and sisterhood. I along with many others who love Ryan are at a loss right now because there is nothing we can do to cure him. So we want to raise money to help them along their journey to fight and hopefully beat cancer while making some good memories along the way. There is so much love in our families and friends but I need your help and support to really make it count! UPDATE*******THE HAPPY COUPLE ARE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!! Errmaagaawwddd!!!!!! We are all so exited!!❤
