My Story

On November 6th , Ryan was injured while trying to clear corn stocks from the corn header.  Cousin Tyler and friend Aaron were able to activate the local EMT and Life Flight. Ryan was alert the entire time and has been surrounded by loving family, friends and caregivers.  The Surgeon removed Ryan's right leg above the knee. We are so thankful for the love and prayers that have been made for Ryan. We will keep you updated everyday.



On November 6th at about 4:30 PM, Ryan was injured while trying to clear corn stocks from the corn header.  Cousin Tyler and friend Aaron were right by and were able to activate the First Responders. Teams from Walcott, Colfax and Kindred all arrived.  Tyler also requested Sanford LifeFlight was needed.  Ryan was airlifted to Sanford Health in Fargo shortly after 5 PM.  Ryan was alert the entire time and has been surrounded by loving family, friends and caregivers.  The Surgeon removed Ryan's right leg above the knee. We are so thankful for all the love and prayers that have been lifted up to God for Ryan.  We are going to fight this like a war and take one battle at a time.  Today  the goal will be pain management and he will actually start Physical Therapy.  We will keep you updated everyday.
