There’s a boy named Collin who is battling brain cancer and besides his YouTube videos, nerf guns got him through hospital stays. They helped with some of his therapy too, plus he got a kick out of shooting people who dare to enter the room. The doctors and nurses loved it.

Katie Markling on March 15th, 2019

Hi Ryan, Read this great article by Braden Holtby: https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/braden-holtby-and-then-we-got-mario-kart-tattoos
You will enjoy it! He talks about mental strategies he uses as a goalie and the Stanley Cup win. You are always in our thoughts and prayers! Stay strong.

Christine Bratnick on March 15th, 2019

Thank you or Thinking of you cards. Create cards that are not only for the doctors and nurses but for the other children or people who are at the hospital or just visiting. Take it a step further,go to the lobby and pass a "Have a nice day" card to a stranger? I bet he will get plenty of smiles in return. Because it is in giving verses receiving that we show our love for others. Prayers for you, Ryan. :)

Happy to hear that Ryan had his last chemo treatment in the Consolidation phase. Sad to hear about the fever, but, remember, it's like the saying #27; "If you miss an exit off of a highway, that okay, just get off and loop back. It's really no big deal." You will have more time at home in the future once you are healed. Stay strong and keeping fighting. :)

I am sad to hear about the low blood counts. I can relate to my past when my counts were low and you have to keep friends away. It can be very lonely. So, what you need to do is to help someone else. Make a card for your nurses, have mom buy a gift for someone of your choice, facetime a teammate. These acts of kindness coming from you will help your spirits. Trust me, it does work. It is in giving of ourselves that we can feel better. That is good medicine. I hope that your coming days will improve. And remember, do something for someone else. You are in my daily prayers.

Today's Message #207; "Healing is all around us, but, learn to accept times when it is more or less." Often as we go through our treatments there are many up and down days. Know that you have loving support and prayers for those days when you are up and down. It is during those down days that you must know that so many care about you and that those prayers will provide you with comfort.

Hi Ryan. This is Mrs. Bratnick. You were in the Lil Bears Preschool class of Mrs. Velotta and I am her aide. I remember you well as a sweet boy and sad to hear about your recent diagnosis. However, I am happy to see that your PET scan came out well. Please know that I am supporting you and will keep you in my daily prayers. I am a two-time breast cancer survivor and you too will be a survivor! Look at each treatment as a great defensive move on the ice, and your family, healthcare workers and friends who support you as the ultimate "teammates" to a winning game. As my way to "pay it forward", I write inspiring messages for those who are undergoing medical treatments. I have written over 200, but, today I will give you #50; "Today, I will count on my friends when I need to laugh." You got this, buddy!! Mrs. Bratnick
