While at work in the PICU I had the pleasure of caring for an amazing boy, Ryan. In 2010 Ryan was diagnosed with a form of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Burkitt's Lymphoma. Ryan fought HARD until August 2011 when he was called home to be with God. Ryan's parents have since started a nonprofit organization in Ryan's honor, Ryan Rocks!! Outdoor Adventures. RROA provides childen with cancer diagnosis and their families amazing outdoor adventures and memories to last a lifetime. They also sponsor events such as movie nights for this children at Beaumont Children's Hospital.
I am so proud to annouce that this year I will be running 26.2 miles for Ryan. I encouage you to check out Ryan Rocks!! website and if it's right for you, any donates would be greatly appreciated.
