Hard to know what to say. Thank You for being who you are. Obviously a man of character which also speaks about who your family must be too. I hope we get to "meet" your Dad on here one day too. The pleasure has been ours.

I cannot imagine the strength it takes to be where you are right now. You are truly a courageous person, and I'm so glad you were able to find the car of your dreams, as well as your accomplishments with the Blue Jackets. I'll be keeping you and your family in my prayers.

Prayers to you and your Family Ryan.
My Brother was fortunate enough to beat cancer but we lost our Father to cancer.

Our family is no stranger to this evil, you are a very brave Man.

You will be in my thoughts and prayers every night...you may have even inspired me to get off my fat *** and go to the Gym

Ryan,

You are a truly inspirational young man. I read through your dad's blog and what strikes me most...other than the words...are your incredible smiles! I really wish that I had had the honor of meeting you.

You've fought a good fight and I'm sure you know that God has a plan for you. You are in our prayers.

May God bless you,

Jim & Janet

Your strength and courage has been more inspirational than you can know! I just looked through your website and want you to know you seem like an amazing person and I will continue to think about this and hope that if you pass you find peaceful rest. Know that you have probably touched thousands with your story, and that it just doesn't seem right how this happens, but you've handled it better than I could ever begin to. Keep that big smile, take solace in your friends and family, and try to enjoy the time you have left.

hoping for the best,
Chandler

Ryan,
Like the others I was touched by your story, 4 years ago I lost my 18 year old son, and to this day it is hard for me to understand why, then a priest suggested that TJ had reached perfection, which he was, I could not have asked for a better, loving caring son, who also loved corvettes, he was a student pilot, and he was about to join the Air Force and hopefully fly F-18s, anyway, my priest suggested God takes people who reach perfection, and makes them angels, which makes sense, because he was perfect...and you seem allot like him, a truly good person, with a tremendous amount of courage, I salute you, and remember you will not ever be forgotten here, we will pray for you, and if you should ever run into my son in Heaven, please give him a hug for me and tell him I love him and miss him so much..

I, along with many others here I'm sure, are both inspired and humbled with the manner in which you are facing your illness. It is people such as yourself who give to others the courage and drive to continue their efforts to find cures for these tragic illnesses.

You show a character, wisdom and dignity far beyond your years.

God bless you Ryan.
