Help Ryker Heal


The GoFundMe was created for our 13 month old son.  He was recently aggressively bitten in the face by a family member's dog.  This couldn't have happened at a worse time because my wife and I just came under contract for a house days before the attack happened.  We fear that his medical expenses will not allow us to continue our pursuit of buying our first home and becoming a family.  

Ryker is 13 months old and was bitten by a mastiff in the face on November 25.  He was immediately rushed to Levine Children's Hospital and received the highest care possible for a child in his situation.  He was administered morphine for his pain and IV antibiotics to reduce the chance of infection.  He was admitted to the hospital after receiving cosmetic surgery from the on-call Dr. Korn and spent the night in the PACU at Levine's.  He has been healing well since his incident.

Fast forward to where we are now, the medical bills have started arriving for the awesome care he received and we are afraid we may not be able to cover all of his expenses.  We thankfully had insurance at the time of the incident as the bills would have totaled $43,000 had we not.  We are still on the hook for $6,200 in medical expenses and are asking friends and family for support.  Even if you may not be able to donate, words of encouragement and shares of our link would be greatly appreciated.  All donations to this fund will go directly towards paying his medical bills and/or his well-being.  Thanks for your time and consideration.
