Rally for Ryan Tadman & his family

Ryan “Tough Tad” Tadman was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in the fall of his freshman year, 2015. He has now been through 4 major surgeries and spent over 135 days in the hospital for surgeries, treatments and recovery. He has maintained his school studies at Saint Mary’s High School and is on track to graduate with his class in 2019. His competitive spirit,faith and pure grit have helped Ryan and his family stay positive through it all!

Ryan is a classic teenage young man who is passionate about the outdoors, hunting and fishing. He is determined not to let his illness get in the way of living his life to the fullest. Just 2 weeks after major surgery to receive a titanium knee and 8” femur, Ryan was out shooting ducks from the duck blinds. He continues to compete at a high level in shooting sports, as well as taking every opportunity to drive his truck to find the perfect fishing hole or hunting spot.

Ryan’s “Tough Tad” friends would like to raise funds to help the Tadman family through this medical adventure.  It is a humble gesture to lend support to a family that helps many others. Thank you for any assistance you are able to give!

 Go Tough Tad!!
