It’s hard to imagine what the family of nine-year-old Ryan Kennedy is going through these days. Ryan has a rare form of brain cancer that has required multiple surgeries, rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. Despite all the medical efforts, the tumors continue to attack his brain. Young Ryan has decided to stop the treatments, knowing that this will most likely end his life. He is currently at home with his family in hospice.
Like many kids who know they are dying, Ryan has a wish. But Ryan’s wish is unusual-he wants to trend on Twitter. When this wish was made public, several celebrities tweeted their followers to make the wish come true. Ryan’s wish is getting noticed. We can all help fulfill it.
Just tweet #RyanKennedy.
With so many well-wishers, Ryan’s mom says he feels cared about and loved. What a fabulous use of Twitter–bring awareness to a killer disease and support a child facing death unless a miracle occurs.
Ryan, I not only tweeted you, but my prayers are with you and your family. You are not only loved by all who see your brave fight, #RyanKennedy God loves you too.
