My name is Polo,
I'm posting this fundariser in efforts to help a dear friend of mine who is on the brink of death.
On the internet he is known as @ChiefzReloaded an inspired programmer who builds custom operating system images for Android devices for devoted geeks like myself to play with. He works on Cyanogenmod as a device maintainer who are the biggest names in the game when it comes to Android ROM developers. Ryan Scott who was your average everyday guy with a family during the day and a devoted geek by night is now fighting day after day to stay alive with Necrotizing Fasciitis also known as "The Flesh Eating" Disease. A picture of a portion of his abdomen is posted here. Plagued by a constant infection and non stop hospital trips he is unable to keep up the crippiling finances from the hospital. So much so that it has taken away from his family who also fight to have everday essentials that we all take granted. Food, shelter, warmth and safety.
The fundraiser is set up to help him and his family fight to keep him alive and help them to aquire funds that will help them find a home. A comfortable place for Ryan to rest and heal, a place for their children to play and help try to keep bills at bay.
Recently he has been struck with lots of bad luck besides the arrival of his daughter before Christmas which he depserately fights to live for. He went into Renal faliure which means his kidneys completely stopped and basiucally killed him. He was revived moments later and weeks after rleleased from the hospital only to find out that he was recenlty and victim of robbery. All his possesions were stolen from a storage unit. His post can be seen here.
The goal is set high to compensate for the cost of Ryan's healthcare and the essentials for his family. Monthly average costs for medications for Ryan's antibiotics and pain management are $900 per month. Since he is unable to get insurance for his illness, doctor visits, hospital stays, and medical equipment are not covered and are all out of pocket.
All funds from this fundraiser are mainly geared towards that. Whatever is leftover wil essentially be for the family.
Every time I talk to Ryan I tell him "Help will come" it has before. The fundraiser that was set up last time may have been small but it was a success. On a small scale it was the biggest achievment we could make for him. I hope to do it again for him and his family.
Your donations just don't save his life, but save hope for his family as well.
If you are unable to donate which I understand many can not. Your voice will help as well. Twitter, facebook, Google Plus, Tumblr, just a mention of this fundraiser to anyone in any way helps Ryan and and his family. The more people know the better his chances are.
