My Story

Ryan is a sweet, loving 6 year old boy who has been diagnosed with a very rare type of brain tumor, Choroid Plexus Carcinoma. Ryan loves Animals! He spends his summers hunting for turtles, frogs, worms, caterpillars. He also loves to go fishing and hunting. Ryan is a fighter and will come out of this a survivor. He is a jokester and loves to make everyone laugh. He is our pride and joy and we cherish every moment we have with him. He loves his little brother, Andrew. They spend all their free time together and miss each other whenever Ryan has to stay overnight in the hospital. For Ryan's story and our family's journey, please visit Ryan's website: http://www.carepages.com/carepages/RyanTerHaar UPDATE: Ryan finished his chemo in September 2009 and has had 2 clear MRI's since. Please keep him in your prayers that his cancer never returns!!!!
