Taylor Ryan, a Real-Life Superhero…Right Here on Long Island’s South Shore

There are heroes that walk among us. They show us that no matter how small we are, no matter what adversity, as long as we fight and stay true to ourselves, we are triumphant even before the battle is done.

South Shore Friends, one of those heroes walking among us is Taylor Ryan. Her mom, Teresa Ryan, along with the rest of her wonderful family and friends helped put together this video about Histiocytosis, a rare cancer-like disease that mainly effects children. Because it is so rare, it is considered an “orphan disease” which means there is no government funding available to it for research into treatment and ultimately a cure. Hope for Taylor and the other kids fighting this disease lies in the hands of people like us donating privately to help find a cure. It is Taylor’s Histio Wish from the moment she was diagnosed at age 8 that she helps make people aware of histiocytosis so that they will find it in their hearts to donate to help find a cure.

Even though histio changed Taylors life, her disease does not define her and in no way has dampened her spirit nor has it faded her luminous smile. Take a few minutes to know Taylor, learn a little about histio and PLEASE spread the word about it. Help her video go viral!!!!
