Help Noah

I have been friends with the Andersen family for over 40 years.  I have watched Ryan growup, marry his lovely wife Sheri and have a little son, Noah.  Last April the entire family's life was shattered.  Ryan went into the hospital with what they thought was pneumonia and was immediately diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer.  All of us were optimistic.  Sheri is 6 years clear of breast cancer and Ryan had beat non-lymphoma hodgkins as a kid.  However, it was not to be this time.

Ryan is losing his battle with cancer.  He is a loving husband to both Sheri and father to Noah.  He painfully endured chemotherapy and radiation during the summer of 2014.  In November, he felt he could make a trip to Florida to visit Kay and Rich, his parents,  but had to cut the trip short because of the pain.  He consulted with his oncologiest upon his return and tests confirmed that the cancer was agressively spreading and no more treatment could be done.

Ryan was able to spend the Christmas with his family, but was then admitted to the hospital for pain management.  He has just been transferred to Hospice Care where he is stuggling to stay with us.

Concern for his family's care when he is gone is a natural worry.  Personally I have donated to Gofundme.com. for other campaigns.   It was suggested by family and friends, who keep asking if they can help with expenses or any other way, to raise money for a educational fund for Noah.  Everyone prayers and constant support have meant a great deal to entire Andersen family and has been greatly appreciated.  However, Ryan is worried about his family's welfare.  Hoping that we can all support him is that time of need so perhaps when the time comes, he can be more at peace.  Thank you and god bless.
