Help Us in Supporting Ryan Dodds' Journey

Donation protected
The story of Ryan Dodds is a testament to the unconquerable spirit of the human heart and the significant impact of community solidarity as Ryan’s life took an unforeseen turn, painting a picture that resonates deeply with all who hear it.

It began on a seemingly ordinary day at work on December 6th, 2021 when Ryan began feeling a simple discomfort in his arm, which quickly spiraled into a life-altering battle with Synovial Cell Sarcoma. Facing this rare cancer, Ryan chose the daunting path of amputation over uncertain chemotherapy, a testament to his courage. Despite the intense physical and emotional pain, support from his daughter, girlfriend Jamie, and her children, as well as his community at Sentry Alarm, has been unwavering.

Following his surgery, Ryan encountered significant financial hurdles in obtaining a necessary prosthetic limb. With determination, he overcame these challenges, yet still faces substantial medical and living expenses. His story, deeply resonating with all who hear it, illustrates the power of resilience and the crucial role of community in navigating life’s toughest moments.

This call for donations goes beyond monetary aid; it is a collective embrace, supporting Ryan’s ongoing recovery and his family’s stability. Every contribution not only eases Ryan’s financial burdens but also strengthens our community by offering hope and a path forward in the face of adversity.

We thank you for your support.
