udfdlocal2493Today after the A Platoon workout, members took a moment to pose for a picture in support of our friend Ryder. Ryder is a 10 year old from Lancaster whom was recently diagnosed with a cancerous Germinoma brain tumor on his Pineal gland. It's a very rare type of Brain Tumor that fortunately for Ryder, and everyone who loves him and has had the pleasure of meeting him, has a very positive prognosis. As with most types of cancer, remission does not come easy though. It will be a long, difficult battle including chemotherapy and proton radiation. He is strong, his family is strong, and his friends are strong. Together we can help Ryder and his family through this. Ryder has ties to Local 2493 as his family is friends with our Captain and Local 2493 President, William Norris.
