RYAN'S PHOTO PAGE
Ryan was born August 12, 1998,
a bright-eyed, 8 lb. 12 oz.,
healthy baby boy.
At 7 months, Ryan's chubby
cheeks and happy disposition
gave his family a lot of hope
for a bright future after his
first bone marrow transplant.
Ten months old, and back
in the hospital after
surgery for removal of
part of a lung. . .but
still happy and smiling ~
this is Grandma Lyn's
favorite photo of Ryan.
Ryan dressed as Elmo,
Halloween 1999.
He couldn't go out, for his
own protection, but had
lots of fun watching the
trick-or-treaters from
his front window.
Ryan loved balls of all kinds and sizes.  One
of his first words was "BA-KA-BALL!"  His
daddy put a small net up on the wall at home,
and when he was in the hospital, it went with
him and was attached to his bed.  Here he is at
16 months old and able to be home for a while.
At 18 months,
what a cutie!
Back in the hospital again, but
after more than two years, Ryan
is a real trooper and makes the
most of his time here!

RYAN'S SCID - THE
MEDICAL STORY
RYAN'S
MEMORIAL QUILT
Ryan loved books, and spent lots
of time looking at his favorites,
or on Grandma Lyn's lap,
as they read together.
This photo was taken shortly
before Ryan began chemo,
prior to a stem cell transplant.
