Ryker, this amazing little fighter, was born with a birth defect that quickly turned into a life threatening disease when he lost over 85% of his small intestines and 50% of his large intestines. In his 2.5 years. he's endured 18 surgeries, 9 blood transfusions, months worth of hospital stays, and countless doctor's appointments. Due to his lack of intestines, his IV is his lifeline and he receives all of his nutrition through it. Ryker is currently hooked up to IV's 16 hours a day (8pm-12pm). Since he needs to be connected to his IV's while he sleeps, his parents worry that if he sleeps on his own in a regular bed, he may wake up in the middle of the night and walk away from his IV pole causing the line to be ripped out of his chest. Because of this, he's been sleeping with his parents. They need our help to get him a medical bed of his own so he can sleep safely (and mama can maybe get some better sleep too!).
His parents have tried to get approval from their insurance for the purchase of a medical bed, but their insurance does not help with medical safety. This bed costs $12,000. Let's help Ryker get his bed!
