Ryan, the son of a Deep River Snacks sales manager (and a close friend of founder Jim Goldberg), spent his whole life living with mitochondrial disease. This disease causes debilitating physical, developmental, and cognitive disabilities and currently has no cure. Ryan sadly lost his battle at the young age of 18, and while his life was short, its influence was great. Ryan continues to inspire everyone who knew him. Together with MitoAction, we hope to raise awareness about mitochondrial disease and improve the quality of life for adults and children affected by this incurable disease.
