Ryder is awesome, a bit quiet but sometimes sassy and always sweet! She was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 18 months and went through surgery and chemo. When she was in third grade, she had the upper portion of her left lung removed due to side effects from chemo and until sixth grade, was on oxygen 24/7. She also had a feeding tube for seven years – seven years! She hasn’t let any of this slow her down at all. She has tried all sorts of sports from soccer to golf and was on the golf team last year! She is a rock star and lives life with such passion and energy and inspires everyone around her!
