The Story

Two years ago, Ryan was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome or MDSa blood disorder formerly known as preleukemia. In Ryan’s case, in an attempt to prevent the disease from progressing, he underwent a stem cell transplant (via donor.) 

Ryan fought an amazingly brave and strong battle for three months before succumbing to complications from the transplant.  He is survived by his two small children, his fiance and her two young daughters.

I appreciate all the support from the donations,prayers and well wishes. It's hard to show that appreciation via internet but it's all greatly appreciated. As far as an update: I'm hoping to be out of the hospital and into the family home tomorrow. 2014 is going to be the start of a healthier and happier year for myself. Happy New Year to all of the supporters and followers.
