Thank you for sharing Ryan’s story. Keep us posted on how he is doing!
Burkitts is horrible, and even when you think it cant get worse, sometimes it does. My son ended up on life support at age 4 with Burkitts this past May. They called him the “Side Effect King”. Im currently proud to say he is now 5 and in remission. We will keep Ryan in our prayers. Keep giving him sometghing to look forward to and fight for. Its a rough road.
How is Ryan doing now?
