Ryan House Shining Star

Jim and Karrie Pierson have been blessed with four wonderful children, Katherine, Joe, Caroline and Anna. Caroline and Anna were born with a rare, undiagnosed genetic disorder causing their brains to stop growing around 20 weeks gestation. “Our sweet Anna passed away at just 5-years-old and Caroline cannot walk, talk or eat orally and struggles with seizures, muscle spasms and visual impairment, but her smile is contagious!” Jim said.

“Jim and I joined the Ryan House Board so we can help others understand the importance of taking time to nurture yourself and care for every precious relationship in your life,” Karrie said. “The Ryan House Care Team is the most knowledgeable in the country for pediatric palliative care and we are proud to be part of this amazing organization.”
