Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! Ryan Kaiser's story has touched my heart in more ways than anyone could ever imagine or relate to...
My name is Jodi Stavola and I am so happy to be running my second Ryan's Run this year! I have more than one reason for running this year. My #1 reason is for the love of my 6 year old son James Michael. James was diagnosed in utero with a cardiac disease called Double Outlet Right Ventricle with a Complex Tausig Bing. He has overcome many odds, but still faces a long and hard road ahead. He has been through 4 open heart surgeries, many minor surgeries and a stroke at 9 months old. At first doctors didnt think that he would live past the age of 2. But, we are thrilled that on June 29 of this year he will be 7 years old! There are no certain outcomes for his future. Although doctors are amazed by his strength and progress that he has made so far. We hope and pray for a cure or a miracle so that James can out live us all.
I run with my heart and soul to pray for a cure for all pediatric cardiac children that mentally and physically struggle day to day as my family and I do. Please sponsor me this year for a great cause. Lets help out in any and evey way that we can. God bless these families that will benefit from this amazing and wonderful race!
