To say Ryan and his family is an inspiration, is an understatement at it’s fullest. Aside from the fact that through all of his diagnosis and treatments in the past 5 years he has kept a positive attitude, he also is a loyal, honest and respectful friend. In some of my lowest and depressing times, he always seemed to know when to reach out and just say “smile” or send me a photo on Facebook book that would make me laugh.
And so his fight continues. As does his concern for the future of his wife and two sons, should the day come that they must continue without him. Not only has Ryan been on a Leave of Absence from American Airlines, making it a one-income family, but he also got the dreaded word in September that he no longer will receive his flight benefits – adding to the already high cost of travel to his doctors in Houston and New York City.
As if the day-to-day cost of living and traveling doesn’t weigh on them enough, Ryan does not have life insurance. Four months before his initial diagnosis in 2009, he canceled his life insurance with his company in the belief he was covered under his wife’s. He did not do his due diligence and has had to live with it everyday. Needless to say he is now un-insurable without paying a hefty price.
I am just one of many that will be raising money for Ryan and Andrea. It is not a short term need either, it is ongoing. I made a promise to Ryan that I would help raise as much money as possible, with the goal being to pay off their mortgage, vehicles and student loans. His biggest fear is that his medical bills and travel expenses will bankrupt their family, and he refuses to do that.
