Ryker was air transported to the Alberta Childrens Hospital just hours after birth on March 17,2018. Ryker called ACH home for his first 7 months. 211 days, 13 O.R vistis, over 25 surgeries and procedures, weeks in NICU, months in and out of PICU and months waiting to join his family at home.
Hospital visits for appoitments, clinics and surgeries are part of life for Ryker and this place really has loved and cared for Ryker as their own and become Rykers extended family.
Ryker has been without a doubt held, healed and blessed by our Heavenly Father. Our faith, family and community have supported and navigated us through many tough months. We would like to use the story of Rykers journey thus far to give back and gain support for this state-of-the-art Hospital we are blessed to have in Calgary for our children.
