Thursday (8/23) We received the biopsy results and discovered the masses were cancerous.
Ryan was diagnosed with B Cell Lymphoma
Friday (8/24) They did a PET scan on his entire body, an echocardiogram, and received a port in his chest for medication.
The PET Scan revealed he has stage 4 cancer and that the masses are in 95% of his abdomen, in his lungs, peritoneal sac, and spots on his liver.
Saturday (8/25) Ryan is starting chemotherapy treatment.
His oncology team decided that he needs to receive 4-5 days of chemotherapy every 3 weeks.
Please pray that his body responds to the treatment.
