Meet Ryker Coltin! A fun-loving, stubborn, playful and obviously extremely animated two-year old boy. On May 27, 2019, this sweet boy suffered a heartbreaking and ultimately tragic accident while camping with his family. While running and playing, Ryker fell backwards into the open flames of the campfire. Although, he was not in the fire for more than 2 seconds, he suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns of all four limbs of his body.

 He was rushed to the emergency room in Fruita, Colorado and later taken by plane to the Children's Hospital Burn Unit in the Denver area. After assessing his injuries, the doctors wrapped his right ankle and hand and put a soft cast on the entirety of his left leg and on his right arm up to his elbow. From there, it was a waiting game of whether or not he would need surgery to place skin graft on the areas that were burned the worst. After being in the hospital for 4 days, Ryker was allowed to go home, but needed to return a week later for a reassessment of the burns. Upon reassessment, doctors came to the decision that he would need a total of three grafts; one on his left ankle, another by his left knee, and then on his left hand and his surgery would take place a week later. 

Miraculously, when he was taken into surgery on June 10th, two of the three areas that were thought to have needed a graft, had healed almost completely and he only need one graft by his left ankle. Although we are thankful for the need of only one graft, Ryker still has very long journey ahead of him. 

He and his family live in Grand Junction; a 4-5 hour drive to the Children's Hospital Burn Unit in Denver. He must return to the hospital a week after surgery for a post-operative check up, and following that, if everything goes well, he must return every three months for at least 1-2 years.

For donations coming from the Summit Kaiju or Godzilla fans please leave a Dinosaur emoji or an * next to your name. We will be giving away a X-Plus 30cm Sakai Yuji Modeling Collection Godzilla (2002) to Godzilla fans who donate to the page so we can randomly pick an individual to give away the Godzilla figure to. 

Thank you in advance to everyone who helps! 

All extra proceeds will be donated to a charity to help the relief of other children who have gone through a similar situation.
