Ryan

Jonathan and Holly Cottor learned their youngest son, Ryan, was not just a “late bloomer,” but was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. There is no treatment or cure for SMA and they were told that 80 percent of children diagnosed before their first birthday would likely not survive to their second birthday. “We were told to take Ryan home and enjoy the time we had with him,” said Jonathan. “We felt devastated, shocked, and anxious about what the days or months ahead would bring.”

“We felt as though we’d hit a wall both physically and emotionally,” Holly said. “Ryan House is not only a dream come true for our family, but for the over 4,000 children diagnosed with life-threatening conditions in Maricopa County. Ryan is not only the Ryan of Ryan House, but a frequent visitor who looks forward to his next stay so he can play games with friends, Cade and Colby, and be spoiled by every member of the Ryan House team!”
