Ryder is a sweet 18 month old baby boy who on July 11th 2017 was diagnosed with a brain tumor adjacent to his pituitary gland. The biopsy results came back that the tumor is not cancerous, however the tumor is very large putting pressure on the surrounding brain tissue causing little Ryder some unpleasant symptoms. Surgery is not an option therefore aggressive chemotherapy will be started early next week in hopes to shrink the tumor or at least stop its growth, chemotherapy treatments will be weekly for at least a year. He is resting alot and his body's working hard on nutrition since he lost so much weight from the tumors effects. He is currently on a feeding tube which he will be on for the duration of his chemo treatments. This was all very unexpected and the family is feeling the prayers keeping them strong as a family. This will be a long haul but Ryder's body is adjusting well so far, he is a strong Brave little baby.
The family will be dealing with many medical expenses now and over the course of Ryder's treatments. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
thank you to all for the prayers, love and support shown to Ryder and his family
