My Norfolk, VA buddy Ryan Beard is an exceptionally gifted shooter who went from studio camera, to news camera to production shooter. Not only does he have a great eye, he’s got a great heart – and a big smile for the folks around him.
I was greatly disheartened to hear that he’s recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. He’s going through treatment now, but the doctors are only giving him 2-3 years.
Being smart, Ryan wants to spend as much of that time with his family and friends – and hopes people can help him.
He’s raising money through GoFundMe.com in order to pay for a family getaway in the Outer Banks, NC. Any money over his goal will go towards medical expenses and a college fund for his son Ben.
