Join us This Summer for Sounds For Cystic Pittsburgh!

Story:This Concert/Party is a Tribute to our beloved brother and friend Ryan Sance. Ryan recently lost his fight with Cystic Fibrosis, but he did not go down without a courageous fight. His willingness to survive produced an admirable miracle. We as his friends and family were lucky enough to have know Ryan and to witness the miracle within his fight. In January 2017 Ryan was placed in the ER because his lungs had collapsed. He was placed on a ventilator for 3 days. During this time Ryan was given a 5% chance to live once the ventilator was removed. A very large group of friends and Family occupied the hospital to say their good byes to Ryan. We were unsure that we would ever speak to him again, let him know how much we loved him. Day by day Ryan fought. After one day on the ventilator his eyes opened up and he was able to see and hear us and write notes to us. On the third day the ventilator was removed and Ryan was able to speak with us again. It was such a miracle to be able to his blue eyes again, to talk with him again. Ryan was able to recover and come home. He passed away in July of 2017 after a long battle, But not before one more last hurrah with his beloved friends on his favorite holiday July 4th ( see event picture). Prior to his last days of fighting CF Ryan was a charismatic figure in the Pittsburgh skateboarding and Music Scene (guitarist for Since Day One). We want to honor Ryan by rocking out with local Pittsburgh acts to honor his name and to join the fight against CF. This is for all of those with CF and the Family and Friends that support them in that battle. We capitalize Family and Friends because with this event we want to put an emphasis on the importance of support systems.
