Ryker Freistat-Davis, born on December 4, 2013, is a silly, active, and loving child. He is the life of the party. Unfortunately, on August 9, 2017 he become just 1 out of approximately 250 children diagnosed with T-ALL (T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) in the U.S.
Ryker is an only child to a 22 year old mother currently attending college and a 25 year old father who cares for Ryker full time while also taking college courses. Currently Ryker's parents are both college students with no income already facing intimidating hospital bills. They are reliant on family, friends, and the community to get through this tough time.
Before the diagnosis Ryker loved to play with animals, especially the new born goats and chicks at his grandmother's farm. He loves looking at waterfalls and going to the model train museum at Balboa park. Ryker is a train fanatic and can answer any train related question asked to him. He also loved to go swimming with Mia, the family dog and his best friend. Because of Ryker compromised immune system and long hospital stays he won't be able to do these things for possibly years to come depending on how treatment goes.
The treatment plan will be at least 3.5 years with a 5 year goal to cure. Your gift is for the long haul for Ryker and others like him.
The Rally for Ryker Foundation will help support Ryker and his family through his journey to beat cancer. It will also bring awareness to a very small percentage of the population that contracts this disease and to bring more money to research. The Foundation will assist children and their parents with medical costs, travel, room-and-board, and at home care cost.
The long term goal is to research and develop a prefabricated and construction services to install a "cleanroom" bedroom for the child's home at NO COST to the family. As the doctor's know, many causes of the most significant issues during Chemo and even death is caused by viruses, bacteria and germs that attack the patient while his or her body's defenses are down. We want each child to be able to go home during their treatment to an environment that will protect them as well as their hospital room, if not better.
