Ryan Torppa Recovery Fund

Hello Friends and Family,

A few weeks ago our brother Ryan Torppa caught a viral infection causing his lungs to fill with fluid which in turn sent him into cardiac and respiratory failure. He suffered a mild heart attack due to a blood clot and has had several strokes.

Ryan spent 5 days in icu, before transferring to the cardiac unit. He is currently waiting to be transferred to SW Medical Center for in patient rehabilitation.

Long story short our brother is Very Lucky to be alive, not many people would survive such a horrific ordeal but Ryan is Naknek strong! If anyone will make a full recovery it is him!!!

Beyond the medical challenges Ryan is facing he is also facing very expensive operations and medical bills. Ryan will be missing this season which is the majority of his yearly income, as it is for most of us. His wife Erica is obviously busy caring for Ryan and unable to work at this time.

We are starting this go fund me page in hopes that we can all pitch in a few bucks to help alleviate some of the stress on Ryan and Erica's plate so that they can focus on Ryans extremely long and difficult recovery. 

If you are able please donate if you can't thats ok, we can all help by keeping him in our minds and prayers.

Also please everyone share this on your social media accounts and get the word out. OUR BROTHER NEEDS US!!! LET'S SHOW HIM HOW WE TAKE CARE OF OUR AK FAMILY!!!
