From the moment she was born, Ryann has suffered from an inherited blood disorder called Sickle Cell Anemia. Those suffering with this disease experience severe episodes of pain and eventual organ damage; they are also at high risk for stroke and cardiac arrest. Ryann suffers extreme pain crises when the temperature changes and she is on a strict daily medication regimen for her condition.
Ryann and her family had a truly wonderful time at Disneyland in California. Ryann rode every ride she wanted and even dared to brave the “Twilight Zone Tower of Terror!” Much to her mother’s chagrin, the ride turned out to be her all-time favorite. Besides the trips to Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure and Universal Studios, Ryann also got the chance to visit Hollywood and even strolled down the Walk of Fame! What a wish!
