Last year on a family vacation I met an incredible family. They were on vacation to decompress after their oldest daughter, Ryan, lost her 3 year battle with a very rare cancer.
Ryan’s parents inspired me not just because they survived something that most parents can’t even fathom, but because they were 2 of the most positive people I’ve ever met.
When I returned from the vacation I Googled their daughter and was absolutely blown away by the impact that this little girl had on so many people. In her 11 short years she was an artist, a figure skater, a student, a sister and a daughter. She was an inspiration to all who met her - and to me, who never got that chance.
In honor of Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month I wanted to share the story of Ryan’s family.
