Ryan has an optic glioma.   Gliomas are tumors that grow in various parts of the brain. Optic gliomas can affect one or both of the optic nerves, which carry visual information to the brain from each eye.  Ryan is 8 years old and has been on chemo for 6.5 yrs.  He’s lost vision in his right eye and will eventually lose his vision in the left.   He’s a charming young man; well-spoken, polite and wise beyond his years.  He’s a NASCAR fan – a big Jeff Gordon fan!  Three guesses what his room theme will be?
