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 son and brother 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.

Ryan Phua Memorial Fund

The Ryan Phua Memorial Fund (Ryan's Fund) was established through the LIVESTRONG Foundation to fund cancer-related programs. To date, over $800,000 has been raised.  Our mission is to focus on cancer programs which address issues including, but not limited to community survivorship, palliative care and end of life care.  We hope a difference can be made in the social recovery of families and their loved ones who have been affected by cancer.  

All donations are fully tax-deductible.  
LIVESTRONG's federal tax ID:  74-2806618.



The LIVESTRONG Foundation exists to enhance the quality of life for those living with, through and beyond cancer. They do this by helping anyone affected by cancer, right now, through their free programs and services.

The Foundation promotes the optimal physical, psychological and social recovery and care of cancer survivors and their loved ones. The LIVESTRONG Foundation focuses its activities on community survivorship programs, national advocacy initiatives, scientific and clinical research grants, and survivorship education and resources, including LIVESTRONG, the Foundation's comprehensive resource for cancer survivors. 

A portion of the monies raised this year will be used to support the Pablove Foundation’s Shutterbug Program through the LIVESTRONG Foundation. Bay Area pediatric cancer patients aged 6 to 18 years old will have the opportunity to learn to express themselves, exercise their independence and practice new ways of seeing through the lens of a camera.  The 5-week program will be taught by professional photographers.   The program culimnates with a public gallery show.
