=============================

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!!

I have felt guilty recently, posting on social media and sharing my musical journey across the states, without acknowledging and expressing my condolences to all that have lost their lives both in the recent shooting in Thousand Oaks, CA and to those that have lost their houses in the fire devastation in both northern and southern California. As the N
neighboring town to Paradise, CA, I will always be proud to call Chico State University my alma matter. I spent 6 years in that area, and love it very much.
As I have always looked to the positive and the growth in all, it has been amazing to witness families coming together, friends housing each other, and all the firemen and firewomen’s courage, teamwork, and dedication to helping the lives of others.
I believe it is innate, in all of us, to want to help and improve the lives of others. In times of need, it is astounding to witness all walks of life come to the rescue of another fellow human, without question.
Let this be a reminder, that we are all together and always will be. And that in times of sorrow, it only makes us appreciate and desire more love for ourselves, and one another.

Twin Cities, Minnesota

I’ve never witnessed such an enthusiastic and engaging staff as I did when I played music for Shriner’s Children Hospital in Twin Cities, Minnesota. Shout out to all of them, whom were not only welcoming to me but made anyone who entered laugh and feel more upbeat than when they first came.
After rolling their upright piano down the hall and into the main atrium for me, they all came out of their respected offices and joined in singing and dancing. No joke. Every single one of them. Afterwards, as we are all laughing about what had just transpired, they insisted that I be decorated in Shriner’s garb. A hat, 2 shirts, sweatshirt, and a blanket that one of them took out of her office - concerned that I stay warm. “Welcome to an example of, Minnesota-nice”, she says as she smiles and hands me the blanket.
Thank you ladies. You not only brought me joy and laughter, but know that every day you do exactly this for any child who enters your little “hospital happy land”. So good for so many.❤️
