A message from Ryder's parents(Kyle Lewis & Izzy Spaan)

After 9 long months & a perfectly healthy pregnancy, we were so excited to meet our son on December 3, 2020. Unfortunately, Ryder’s entrance into this world was every parent's worst nightmare. After complications during delivery, Ryder was eventually delivered via a delayed emergency C-section. During this time, when every second was counting, Ryder was deprived of oxygen for an unknown amount of time. At birth, he was intubated & finally air-lifted to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland, where he was placed on a cooling blanket in hopes of stopping further damage to his brain.

Ryder was in the NICU there for almost the entire first month of his life. Every scenario of Ryder’s (quality of) life was presented by the NICU Team to us, but we knew early on he had the heart of a fighter. After being told that Ryder may not live, to get see him smile & hear him laugh we know we are not only experiencing a miracle, but that our son has a will to thrive!

The first 5 years of Ryder’s life are critical in creating new pathways in his brain & increasing all of his abilities - therapy is key for this. Ryder's future is filled with possibilities so as a family we are committed to maximize every ability our miracle son has & celebrate his accomplishments every chance we get! Ryder’s(& Izzy's) weeks are spent in various appointments with intellectual therapists, hearing therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and chiropractors, etc.

We can not thank our family & friends enough for their love & support throughout Ryder's first year. As his first birthday approaches, we ask that instead of traditional presents, you consider giving to this fund that we will use towards extra therapy intensives & specialized toys & equipment for Ryder. Most of all, we are so grateful for all of you keeping us & Ryder in your thoughts and prayers.

Love,

Kyle, Izzy & Ryder
