Ryan Needs Our Help!

In 2010, after waiting more than two years, Ryan began preparations for a kidney transplant at Mass General Hospital. Ryan was initially planned to be part of an experimental clinical trial that would involve chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant in conjunction with his kidney, before the trial was cancelled in March of 2010. Instead, Ryan became the first patient in a different clinical trial that would use a cocktail of immnosuppressants and other drugs to help his body adjust to the new kidney. Ryan was lucky that his living donor was his mom, and was considered an excellent match for this particular trial.

The fundraiser last night was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who helped prepare for the event by donating an item for the raffle, auction or your time! Ryan and Lauren are forever grateful for your support. We will share the news of a surgery date once we have one!

Save the Date! Ryan’s family and friends will be hosting a fundraiser on Saturday May 19th from 7-11pm at the Local 103 Union Hall.

If anyone is willing to help we are looking for silent auction and raffles items, as well as volunteers to setup and work the event.

Thank you for your support!
