About this page! This is Ryders page!
Ryder is a dinosaur, minecraft, and lego loving six year old boy who has a gastronomy feeding tube in his belly. The gastronomy feeding tube provides necessary calories needed to help him physically to grow due to the fact that he was born with very rare food allergies/FPIES, oral aversion, and sensory concerns that prevented him from eating enough to live and thrive.
He has depended on the gastronomy feeding tube since he was two years old so that he could live. He now has been cleared to eat for several years now but is to afraid. We have a lot of mental and behavioral therapeutic needs for him to learn to eat.
We are thankful Ryder has been assessed and met pre approval for an intensive several week hospital stay at the children's hospital (Kennedy Kreiger Children's Hospital) a few hours away from our home.
Here is some more information about the program:
This will of course be a lot of money in lodging, food, travel, and comfort items for Ryder's stay as well as a caregiver (mom/dad/or grandma) at all times.
He is on the waiting list and we have been told to expect a call for him to come for his 8 week stay in Baltimore by/near January 2022. We are now preparing now for the financial needs that this will be for our family.
All sales from this page go directly to pay for expenses for Ryder's medical related costs. When you buy anything from this page you are directly helping him eat! Thank you so much!
The candles smell beautiful and are perfect if you are sensitive to smells! I cannot stand candles bought from the store because they give me instant headaches, Dragonfly Bliss candles have never given me headaches and smell amazing!
The candles are excellent quality, long lasting and incredible aromas!
Beautiful non toxic candles. I ordered the Frazier Fir which smells amazing, and the Fallen Leaves and Christmas Hearth which I will gift to friends. I will definitely be ordering more in the future!
