The Ryan B. Dream Project

The Ryan B. Dream Project

It is with a heavy heart that I write to you today. One of Audio Xperts long term clients, Ryan Bartlett and his family need my help so I am asking for yours. As you will read below in the letter I asked his dad write, last year he was diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing an aggressive treatment including chemo and radiation. Ryan is a fighter and is very determined to beat this sickness. He is not only a gifted athlete, but a scholar and community servant. In an effort to keep his morale up, his family and friends have rallied together to buy him a 2011 Camaro and the first thing out of his mouth when he was told about it was “I’m going to see Vince and put together a bad ass system” Even though he was in the hospital at the time and in really no condition to travel. His father called me and asked if I could come visit him, and talk to him about his system. It was all he wanted to talk about in his hospital bed. So I went and spent about an hour with him. He told me all the things he wanted to do to his new car and it was adding up fast. His dad even had to tell him to slow down, because his budget wasn’t as big as his dreams. I knew right then and there that I had to do everything in my power to help this young man and his family. After being released from the hospital between treatments he came to my store last week to further discuss his system. I am so amazed by this young man’s will to live and fight this terrible disease and I want to do everything I can to make his dream come true. I am asking for any help you can give to Ryan and his dream. I just went live today on a “Ryan B. Dream Project” fund on my website to help family, friends, and anyone else who wants to, donate money to help Ryan.

I know times are tough for everyone but Ryan has really touched our community and we would all appreciate any help you can give.

Please forward this email and share the link below with anyone you know who can help us:

Ryan’s Bio:

My name is Ryan Bartlett.  I’m 21 years old. I grew up in Vacaville, California. I attended Vanden High School and excelled as a student athlete. I graduated with Honors and a 3.9 GPA. I volunteered throughout school with the traveling team I played baseball on. We did fundraising for those in need, served food to the elderly and helped coach Little League. I played Baseball from the time I was 8 years old. I played throughout school and was a High School Pitcher and Outfielder. I was recruited by many Colleges to play Baseball. I selected Consumnes River College in Elk Grove California. I was a freshmen starter at the position of Pitcher.

While working on the Gulf of Mexico BP Oil Spill disaster, I fell ill and was diagnosed with Stage 3 Testicular Cancer (Oct 2, 2010). I believe I had it for about 3 years. I never said anything because it never bothered me and did not cause me any real problems. I guess I thought I was young and nothing could happen to me. I was wrong. I have multiple tumors in my Brain, Lungs, and Abdomen. I’ve been fighting this terrible silent disease for 5 months now. My first line chemo had some success, but failed in other ways. I am going through second line chemo now. This included 3 weeks of whole brain radiation. I had a brain seizure that placed me in ICU in critical condition for 11 of the 15 days I was hospitalized. My goal is to continue my chemo treatments and receive very complicated Stem Cell replacement transplants at Stanford University Medical Center within the next month to two months. I plan to beat the odds and will become a success story. My mind is strong and I am a tough competitor. I am very motivated to beat this disease.
