We’re eternally grateful for the generosity shown towards our attempts to raise awareness, research and ultimately find a cure for MND and, as a […]
I cannot believe that 9 months have gone by since my last update! We were warned at the outset when establishing the R. W.

HAPPY NEW YEAR family and friends! A bit late, but I truly hope this update finds each one of you happy and healthy. I’m going to keep this one short! I am fortunate enough to be a farmer, which does not feel like an occupation, it feels more like a privilege. I have grown up […]
2015 was a tough year for a lot of people. The ongoing drought has put increased pressure on the farming community and related industries. The SA government continues to embarrass itself with outrageous policies and statements, causing confidence and the Rand to fall to an all time low.

My subjective opinion is as follows: I had about 40-60 days after the stem cell therapy where i felt very little, if any degeneration. In days 60-80, I have unfortunately felt […]
As many of you may or may not know – some of Ryan’s mates have been extremely generous and thoughtful by putting together a stock sale that will be held in Mooi River tomorrow which will be in support of the Ryan Walker Foundation.

I’m going to start off by thanking everyone again, as I feel that I cannot thank all of you enough for all the support I have been shown.
