Medical Fundraisers For A Child In Need
Community Rallies to Help Two Year Old Boy
A local restaurant in Rock Hill, SC is partnering with All Things Possible Ministries to help two-year-old Ryley Hufford of Rock Hill, SC. Ryley was born with a rare genetic disorder. His #1 Chromosome is missing 75% of the genes it should contain. He also has severe scoliosis of the spine and is wearing a body cast. He cannot talk, stand, walk, sit or crawl. Due to a malformed pallet and digestive disorders, he is fed through a feeding tube directly into his stomach. Ryley turned 2 years old in August. His stomach is unusually small so he is fed every few hours, yet only weighs 17 pounds. Ryley is being raised by his grandparents, who have had full custody of him since he was removed from his parents at 7 months old. Ryley’s grandparents are now alternating 12 hour shifts due to Ryley’s feeding schedule. A potentially life-threatening brain surgery is on the horizon for Ryley because his brain has shifted to one side. Surgery may be avoided if he gets a cranial band helmet. The other piece of equipment needed is a P-Pod chair that will result in better digestion during Ryley’s tube feeding and increased spinal support. Unfortunately, Medicaid won’t pay for any of that.
A medical fundraising event is scheduled for this coming Saturday, November 11, 2016 at Michael’s Rock Hill Grille. Ryley and his grandparents will be onsite to share his story with potential donors. “It will be nice to say thank you in person to anyone willing to help,” says Ryley’s grandmother Cindy. All Things Possible is initiating this fundraising event to help raise the $6,500 needed to purchase these two pieces of much needed medical equipment.
