My Story

If you know Ricky odds are you love him, to paraphrase the saying. Right now Ricky and his family need all the love and support they can get. On July 2nd my friend fell from his hotel window on the fourth floor, and he is now in a grueling fight to recover from his grievous injuries and return home to all of us. With the help of his family I will be using this site to keep his friends and loved ones informed, and to rally the support he will surely need on the road to recovery. With everyone's help, and the help of God, we can bring Ricky home, healthy and safe.

With Sincere Thanks,

Patrick Cannon
