Things On The Horizon

Hi everyone, it's Tash. Thanks so much for all of the support you have provided us over the past few weeks, it does really help us along a little bit better. Although it may seem like things have been quiet, we have been working on a few things that I wanted to pass along.

Firstly, there is a group working on a website to sell the book ( and we have some books that are being printed right now. We hope to have everything up and running within the next couple of weeks so stay tuned for how you can get one.

Also, a couple of friends are putting together a fundraiser called "Smiles for Ryan" with proceeds going to Rosedale Hospice - the amazing place that took such good care of us all for the past couple of months. It will be the May long weekend and they will be offering up their photography services for family photo sessions for a donation. We should more details within the next week on that too.

Until then, keep smiling for Ryan!

Always thinking about you guys. Sending love and light your way everyday. Will definetly keep smiling for Ryan. It is kind of strange how complete strangers can change the way you look a life. So Thank-you to you and Ryan. Will definetly keep smiling for Ryan and will be waiting for the book. I'am really looking forward to reading it. What a great idea for the fundraiser. You all are doing Amazing things. I'am sure Ryan is watching with a huge smile.

Hi Tasha,
Thank you for letting us know how we will eventually be able to get a copy of Ryan's book. We are looking forward to an upbeat but intensive read.

Good luck with the fundraiser. It is so appropriate that family photo sessions will generate funds for the Rosedale Hospice in Ryan's memory. The theme of the day will be reinforced over and over again in the photographer's favorite word: "SMILE!" What a great idea!

Now we're smiling too. Take care,
Louise and David

Tahsa, We wanted to write a book when my sister died, of the same tumor Ryan had, but we didn't. We want to read your book and if we can help at all with distributing or anything, please let me know.

Hey Tash,

I can't remember if I commented here when I first read, it might just not have been published yet. Sorry if I'm duplicating...

You don't know me at all and I didn't know Ryan, but I have been follwing his story for a while and am so saddened by his passing. I just wanted to say that I also lost my husband (suddenly in a scuba diving accident) very young and was left on my own with our 6 week old baby.

Anyway, Jake'll be 6 in a few days time and, while I know you can't see past lunch time at the moment, I just wanted to say from someone who's been down a similar road, it does get easier to live with. You'll always miss Ryan, but you have your beautiful little boy to live for and he is going to make you smile so much through the years.

Try look for little things to make you happy and just know that I am thinking of you from far away...
