On December 1st, Ryan & Jenny went to the ER to have Ryan’s neck checked for injury. They were shocked to learn he has a tumor at the base of his skull that has eroded the bone where his skull and top two vertebrae meet.
He’s been transferred to Westchester Medical where he will have surgery on the morning of December 4th to remove the tumor and again a couple days later to have titanium rods stabilize his spine and skull.
Ryan has a long road ahead, he will be recovering in the hospital for a week post surgery, as well as another week of inpatient rehab and a few months of physical and occupational therapy.
As you all know Ryan is a self employed graphic designer which makes him ineligible for many work place protections and benefits.
Even though he has some insurance, he will still have medical bills in addition to not being able to work while he recovers.
We're hoping we can raise some funds to put towards medical bills and regular bills that he will take on once he's discharged.
