Ryan's Road to Recovery

Ryan, a dear friend and family member of many needs our help. As many of you know Ryan has been battling a serious, inoperable and (now) malignant brain tumor for several years with incredible bravery, strength and optimism. Over the last several years, he has had multiple recurrences, and it has become more progressive (malignant). He has undergone surgeries, various grueling chemotherapy regimens, radiation, Gamma-knife, bio-treatments etc... Over the past 6 months he has been on a treatment that requires him to wear electrodes on his head 24 hours a day, and he is also on two very strong chemo pills he takes nightly that make him very ill. Despite the inquisitive looks that he receives while wearing the treatments, he keeps moving forward.

He suffers from migraines on a daily basis, seizures, joint pain, extreme weakness, nausea, dizziness and severe exhaustion along with many other ailments.  To make matters worse, his wife cannot be employed full-time due to his needs.  All of these struggles have led to years of medical expenses and significant income loss. Living expenses and medical bills are adding up and they are emotionally drained due to he and his wife being repeatedly hit with rough times. 

 If we can help give them peace of mind by helping out significantly with their financial needs, they can focus on Ryan's healing without the added financial distress. Their goals are to pay off medical bills, move closer to the city near family (to a place with a first floor bedroom/bathroom asap for safety reasons) and also be prepared to travel in case Ryan becomes eligible for the out of state trials they are looking into (which would incur significant travel and more medical costs). Ryan is an amazing guy and outstanding husband to Laura. This fund is set up to go directly to Ryan and his wife. You also have the option to donate anonymously.

Thank you very much for your support.

~The Friends and Family of Ryan and Laura
