#RyFight Fundraiser



For probably one of the first times in my life, I have been left speechless.   I am completely overwhelmed by the love and support I have received from so many of you.  I found myself repeating the line “This is F*#king crazy” all day yesterday when I would occasionally look at Facebook or the fundraising page.  I would like to thank Squirrel and everyone that helped create the fundraising page.  This would be a much more difficult battle without the constant support and creativity of my close friends. 

I know that everyone has struggles of his or her own and to see you go out of your way to help with my own struggle is truly remarkable.  I have read a lot about Cancer recently, as you can imagine, and a lot of what is said is how key it is to have a positive outlook and a strong network of people to surround and support you.  I have generally been fairly upbeat and positive about my diagnosis and my ability to beat this, though after seeing this amazing outpour of support and to read some of the great memories people have, there is no doubt in my mind that I will fight non-stop so that I can keep making memories with each and everyone of you. 

Thank you all so much.  I love you.



I am stunned.

How do I even begin to thank all people that contributed? All of the people that reached out? All of the people that spread the word to their friends, families, and neighbors? I know Ryan will have expressed this much more eloquently than I could ever hope to attempt, but these last 24 hours have been simply incredible. Many of you Ryan and I have known for many years, some of you Ryan has known his entire life, some of you I haven’t seen in years, and some of you I haven’t had the chance to meet yet. Yet it is truly beautiful that no matter where you may be in your personal walk of life, you took this time to think of us. And to care for us. Thank you so much.
