Ryan tells his journey through Lyme into becoming an EMT and National Guardsman.
From the Hartford Courant:
“The athletically built Will has come a long way from childhood, much of it spent at the doctor’s office because he was plagued by constant illness. His health problems, arising from Lyme disease, caused him to miss weeks and months of school, delaying his graduation by two years. He doesn’t like to talk about this period of his life, except to say, “It was hard.” When he finally got better in his late teens, Will says that he felt he had to make up for lost time.”
Now he is a an EMT and National Guardsman, using his experience from when he was sick to help others.
