Blom Family Benefit: Ryan Blom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma in early May. Since then, he has
four surgeries to remove tumors and repair vertebrae. He has
completed two rounds of radiation and is continuing
immunotherapy. Ryan’s cancer and tumor growths on the spine
have significantly decreased his strength and range of motion,
especially in his legs. Ryan
hopes to begin
physical therapy as he recovers from radiation treatments. A
benefit is being planned for Ryan, his wife Christa, and their
children Kalli, Megan and Zack on Wednesday, August 22, Ryan’s 35th birthday, from 5:00-8:00 pm in the Edgerton City Park.
A Pulled Pork or Hotdog meal will be served from the South
Shelter. A freewill donation will be collected to help defray
medical costs, purchase a
handicap accessible van, and
support planned wheelchair accessible home remodel costs. All
checks can made to Blom Benefit First CRC. Donations may
also be made at First State Bank in Edgerton to the Blom Family account
established by Edgerton First CRC.
