On October 19th, 2023, our family received the news that our son Ryder Finkel has a rare form of childhood brain cancer. He has an inoperable tumor on his brain stem and we've been informed his time with us is limited.
Ryder is a gift to all those around him. He has always been filled with nothing but love and positivity. We have always said from day one, "this kid just loves being alive".
The road ahead of us is unknown, but we do know the road will end. We are surrounded by the love of our family, friends and community and we will lean on all of you to travel this road together.
Many of you have asked and offered to help. In the comings days, weeks and months that we still have, we want to focus on nothing other then making the most of the moments. Any donation you are willing to give is helpful in ensuring we can do this without the added stress of worrying about money.
Whenever anyone tells Ryder "I love you", his immediate response is "I love you more".
We love you all...and Ryder loves you more.
Thank you for your donation.
