Isaiah’s Smile Will Melt Your Heart!

Isaiah’s Smile Will Melt Your Heart!

We recently caught up with Ryan House’s Development Director, Amy O’Sullivan, to check-in and hear about some highlights she’s experienced since joining our team earlier this year.

When I joined the Ryan House team as development director earlier this year, one of the first kids that I had the privilege to meet was Isaiah.  It was clear that he had the entire staff wrapped around his finger – and it was easy to see why.  He is kind, sweet, and has a smile that will melt your heart!

Isaiah has been coming to Ryan House since its inception in 2010. For the past 11 years, he has been able to participate in all that Ryan House has to offer. While at Ryan House, Isaiah is cared for by our highly- skilled clinical team while his mother takes a much-needed break from the 24/7 care that is required when you have a child with complex medical needs.

 There is currently no insurance reimbursement for the respite and palliative care we provide. Ryan House is funded solely on community contributions from donors like you. 

One of the best ways that you can help support kids like Isaiah is by becoming a monthly donor. 

For only $10 a month, your gift will provide life-enhancing therapeutic activities for four children.  For $25 a month, your gift will provide supplies for one of our signature family events.  For $100 a month, your gift will cover the cost of an entire year of respite stays for one of our Ryan House kids. 

Last month, we celebrated Isaiah’s final respite stay at Ryan House. Although he has officially aged out of our program, we hope that the care he received at Ryan House over the past 11 years has improved his quality of life – without a doubt, he has changed ours.

Signing up to give monthly is easy – simply click here and select the Recurring Donation option!
