Let your Light Shine

Ryan’s Rays was created to honour the memory of Ryan Martz, a 7-year old boy from Ancaster, Ontario, who passed away suddenly in March 2016.  Ryan was diagnosed at birth with a rare congenital disorder yet despite his challenges, Ryan brought light and love to all who met him through his bright blue eyes and contagious smile. Ryan loved the sun and could always be found wherever the sun’s rays shone the brightest.  Ryan’s family and friends want his rays to continue to shine and impact the world and thus Ryan’s Rays was created.
