Ryan is 11.  He loves pizza, gaming and is aspiring to be a full-time YouTuber.  He has also endured over 700 treatments for blood cancer. 

In 2020, just a month out from finishing his last chemo treatment – he selflessly shaved his recently re-grown hair for the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave. 

“The treatment for is so rough. One of the first things that my doctor said to me was… if I wanted to survive leukaemia, I first had to survive the treatment.

This is why we need money for research. There has to be a better way,”  Ryan said.

Ryan got sponsored to shave his hair because he desperately wants to make treatment easier for kids in the future.

So, after everything he’d been through, Ryan put on the shave cape and lost his locks in front of his cheering schoolmates (and even inspired his principal to shave, too!).
