Improved Eyesight for Ryder

My 3-year old son Ryder Stiner was diagnosed with ocular albinism with nystagmus at 2 months. Doctors told me no surgery, glasses, or contacts would be able to help my child see the beauty of the world and at best, he would be legally blind. Doctors said he would never drive or play sports. But God put a blessing in our path and we were introduced to Dr. Lingua in Irvine, California who specializes in an eye muscle surgery that will completely fix Ryder's nystagmus. This would bring Ryder out of the legally blind category and give him a chance to live a full life as a visually able person. We would be staying in Irvine for two weeks when we are able to finally have surgery. I made a promise to my son and God that I would always give him the best care possible. Please help us make this dream of improved eyesight a reality, we would be forever grateful.

We have good and bad news. The bad, the Children's Hospital in Akron will not allow Medicaid patients to pay cash for surgery. The good, we found the man who fine tuned and improved this surgery in Irvine, California and has agreed to do Ryder's surgery. The good, it will completely FIX the nystagmus. The bad, the cost of the surgery has now climbed to $38,000 and we will have to be there for nearly two weeks. Want to know more..... click the link below, this is so exciting for Ryder.
