2 1/2 years ago, Ryan Brolliar, a professional musician from San Diego, CA, received news of a tumor in his spine. Ever since, his life has taken on a dramatic change. 

“My life has become less and less about me, and instead about how I can be of service to others." Ryan says,  "I feel like I’ve been given the gift of music, and it’s time to give it back."

Over the last 2 years, Ryan has visited and played music for over 40 different hospitals, senior care facilities, and hospice in California and Nevada. He now hopes to bring this same love and music to hospitals and people in need across the entire country! The more financial support the tour gets, the more hospitals and visits Ryan will be able to make!!

PITSTOP #1: Westcoast Sprinter. Salinas, CA.
The Jambulance gets a HEART TRANSPLANT❤️

Sorry I’ve been quiet on the updates lately. We (the Jambulance and I), have been experiencing a little hiccup with engine troubles. Actually, kind of a large hiccup.. Oil burning and piston rings needing to be replaced, has led to needing a completely new engine.
Bad news: Pretty costly. Good news: What better time and way to start a 50 state/20,000 mile journey than with a clean slate and new heart/engine.

This original 2008 Solano County Ambulance, had saved and prolonged the lives of numerous people and families. What a beautiful life and heart it had. I can feel it smiling now however, as it’s NEW HEART is purring and beating strong underneath the hood. Not to mention my own peace of mind, as the last thing I want to worry about is breaking down in the middle of no where in winter.

I want to thank “Westcoast Sprinter & Auto” for their expertise, professionalism, honesty, and sacrifice to make this happen. Any of you want to take your Sprinter anywhere, this is your place.

I also want to thank the Casey Family, who once again took me in while the Jambulance was on blocks.

Here’s to the Ambulance’s OLD HEART and the lives it saved. And here’s to the “Jambulance’s” NEW HEART, and the lives it will bring joy and peace to in the future!

Cheers everyone. And may the journey the continue!!❤️

STOP #2: “CHOMP” (Community Hospital of the Monterey Pennisula). It’s not everyday that you find a hospital and environment as giving and open to alternative healing as CHOMP. I’ve been told to come here by many, as they said I would love it. It’s hospitals such as these that will inspire such programs to be created everywhere. Thank you to Angela Coatu and staff for taking me in!❤️ #communityhospitalofthemontereypeninsula #musicismedicinetour #dogood @musicismedicinetour @ryanbrolliar

STOP #3: Witter Ranch Elementary School in Sacramento, CA.
Wanted to thank Stacy Edelen for having me to come and speak and sing to her 4th graders. We had the students write about a gift or a characteristic they each possessed, and how they could use it to be of service to others. Their responses were incredible, and feel so lucky to have met all of these amazing children. Here’s to planting seeds at a young age of inspiration and positive impact!❤️ #dogood #musicismedicinetour #beofservice @ryanbrolliar @musicismedicinetour
