Hi, My name is Ryder.  I am 11 years old.  On January 13, 2017

I was diagnosed with brain cancer.  After my 195 day battle on July 27, 2017 I was told by my doctor that I am cancer free.  Throughout my battle, I received so many cards and gifts and encouraging words.  That is what got me through the rough days.  I was able to keep on smiling.


I have started a give back campaign called Ryder’s Smile Packages.  I have collected items that I thought were very helpful to me during treatment.  Every item in each package has been generously donated.  I was told multiple times that NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE and I truly believe in that and want every child who has cancer to know that they are not alone.
