Ryley Stands!!

So much to be thankful for on this day before Thanksgiving. But today, I am most thankful for the opportunity to see my boy Ryley stand! Words can not do justice on the feelings I have seeing this with my own eyes…tears of joy!
Here you too can see Ryley in a EasyStand Evolv Standing Frame. An incredible medical device technology that provides so many benefits for those with spinal cord injuries. Outside of the elated feeling Ryley must have to stand tall at 6′ 3″ once again after 4+ months, there are numerous other medical benefits. Reduced muscle atrophy, increased bone density, increased core strength, etc, etc. He can use this stand on his weekly physical therapy visits but it is so much more beneficial to have access to it on a daily basis at home. But such technology comes at a cost…$8K to be exact.
A dear friend from my high school days, Suzan Rose has pledged to match any donations made to Ryley’s HelpHOPELive page (Click Here) in the month of November up to $5,000 which would make a total donation off $10,000!!! More than enough to fund the purchase of the EasyStand for use at home. Thank you Suzan!!!
All donations made are tax deductible *PLUS* on Tuesday, Nov. 29, in honor of #GivingTuesday, HelpHOPELive will #FreeTheFee! that means your donation to HelpHOPELive in Ryley’s honor will NOT have ANY credit card fee taken out!! No credit card fee = more impact from your donation! #TealDeal
Thank you all for your continued support! We love you all and have a VERY Happy Thanksgiving!! And he said to me, “Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak with you.”
