The Ry Guy Story

The Ry Guy Foundation was founded in memory of Ryan Baker, who passed away from Ewing Sarcoma in January of 2014 after a brave 18 month battle.  The foundation was formed to help raise money for Ewing Sarcoma and Pediatric Cancer research, which are dramatically underfunded in this country.  Each year, less than 5% of Federal cancer research dollars are spent on pediatric cancer research despite over thousands of children dying from cancer each year and the incidence of childhood cancer increasing dramatically over the past 20 years.
