This is my friend Ryan Wood. He is the boy on the left sitting on the stairs.
Last April he was diagnosed with cancer, but it was quickly removed. Doctors were sure it wouldn’t return, but this September it reappeared and he began to get really sick. He’s only is 16 years old and was a healthy football player until this happened. A few days ago he was given a CAT scan and yesterday was told he has 2-4 weeks left to live. When doctors broke the news to him he was completely devastated and hopeless, but then a few of his close friends had the idea to get his story out on twitter. Ryan woke up this morning to hundreds of tweets and follows with #PrayForRyan attached and he started feeling like maybe there was a thread of hope to hold onto. They even got the basketball player Chris Paul to tweet about it. What we need you to help us do is to make this the best two weeks of his life and make him believe that it will not be his last. If you reblog this and spread the word I will be forever grateful and it would mean so much to me and especially him. I challenge you to log onto twitter right now and just tweet something nice and hopeful with the hashtag #PrayForRyan attached. His twitter name is @Woodryanw if you want to tweet directly to him. Tell all of your friends, if you know tumblr famous people or actually famous people it would be incredible if you could get this out to them. I don’t know how anyone could possibly scroll past this. NOW WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR
