Our Cause

Our Message as Ryan's parents

A message from Ryan & Matthew's parents, John and Michele.

Ryan's Ride is named in memory of Ryan Phua, one of our twins son, born after after John's successful recovery from cancer. Ryan was a healthy charming little boy who made our home sparkle with excitement.  At the age of 2 1/2, Ryan passed away from Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) on July 8, 2003.  Our family misses our little boy in our lives every day, and we now focus our energy on planning Ryan's Ride to celebrate his life and feel his presence more than his absence.        

We established the Ryan Phua Memorial Fund (Ryan's Fund) through the LIVESTRONG Foundation to support cancer survivorship programs. We hope that you can join our family at Ryan's Ride to honor Ryan's precious short life and create unforgettable memories with your own families.
