The family and friends of Joshua Ryan are coming together to raise money to help him with his battle against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Joshua was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (aka DMD) at the age of 8. DMD is a progressive muscle wasting disease that has robbed Joshua the basic joys of childhood. He can no longer run, walk, jump, skip, climb steps, or even sit up on his own. The dreams of sports are gone.... but his spirit for a happy future is still alive.

We are asking for help to raise money to pay for the last of his medical equipment. We were able to get a ramp for the house last summer and just this last month we were able to get his powerchair and the vehicle carrier. He still needs a lift (to help aid getting him in and out of bed, etc.), a specific bed that will help him be able to sit up on his own, and a bath lift that will help him be able to bath indepedently. Josh has to depend on so many for so much and these pieces of equipment will allow him to be less dependent and more independent.

Once again, we are asking that everyone donate a small amount in the honor of his birthday on September 7th. This year we are asking for 11 dollars for his 11th birthday.

Every year that we get to celebrate with him is a blessing. We thank you for taking the time to read this and help Joshua in his life long journey.

If you would like to send a donation by mail please call Heather Brian at 318-489-3947 for more information.
