My brother Kevin needs your help! Kevin "Bear" Ryder is a 22 year active Police Officer in Newport News VA, and was injured on the job last year when he was pushed down the stairs while trying to help a family. After a back surgery and a long recovery, he was finally cleared to ride his motorcycle (his one true joy in the world) and was looking forward to being cleared to work again soon. Unfortunately he was cut off by a careless driver in a hit and run and wrecked his bike. 

Kevin is a big guy, with an even bigger heart and now he is in the hospital with a broken clavical, scapula, broken ribs, a collapsed lung, and has a chest tube to relieve the internal bleeding. His bills are piling up and his workmans comp has already been reduced to half pay, He will probably out for many months now in recovery. He has done more for the community than most and has never asked for anything, and now it's our turn to help him out!

Please help this True Hero and make it easier for him to sleep at night without worrying about his bills. Anything you can give ...... $5, $10, $20, or more if you feel you can, would be a true blessing to Kevin! Also please share this link to your social media pages so we can get the word out! Thank you and God bless you all!

Kevin has had a go of it, since this campaign was started Kevin's condition took a critical turn for the worse. He is fighting for every breath. He has been in the ICU and we came close to losing him twice. Today as of 3/22/17 the doctors are encouraged.. If we get through the next week Kevin should be on a slow road to recovery. We thank you all for your kind words, prayers and donations..
