meet Ryan & AJ, the Design Contest winners!

Ryan & AJ Ravestein

Over the last year, as Ryan was repeatedly hospitalized to treat a malignant brain tumor, including a craniotomy and three stem cell transplants, her brother AJ found himself without his sister for the first time. Restricted from spending time together inside the hospital due to covid precautions, the brother-sister duo started sending each other artwork, and one of those art pieces eventually won the Resilience Gives' sock design contest!
