He spent most of his young adult life searching for methods to help him overcome his pain, while vigilantly pursuing all of his dreams and goals. He has overcome so much physical and mental adversity that medical practitioners have been quoted saying; "We don't understand how he is even moving, let alone doing all the incredible things he now does!"
Ryan has overcome debilitating injuries, life-threatening and infectious disease, broken limbs, multiple concussions, double knee surgery, and even paresis (partial loss / impairment of voluntary movement). He was told by doctors on 3 separate occasions that he would; "never walk, run, or play sports again." Professionals have even referred to him as a "Scientific Anomaly!"
