Chip and Judy McElroy who lost their son, Ryan to cancer just shy of his fifth birthday, founded the Ryan McElroy Children’s Cancer Foundation. It was Ryan’s courageous strength and determination that led to the creation of the foundation. Chip and Judy wanted people that did not know Ryan to know him and for people that did know Ryan to never forget him.
Chip and Judy McElroy wanted to create Ryan’s foundation to help other children and families that are suffering with life threatening illnesses. Having gone through this devastating fight with Ryan, they knew how it felt emotionally and financially. They never want any family to think of what they could have done, would have done, or should have done for their child. Ryan’s Foundation helps the family and child with anything imaginable to save the life of that child.
