501st Legion | MidSouth Garrison


Many of you know Ryan. Either from his time spent as a biker scout, as the 10th Dr. Who, from playing fiddle for the Lo Cash Cowboys, or just from being an all around great guy. Recently Ryan has fallen quite ill and is currently in critical condition in the hospital. This has taken many by surprise and filled everyone that has ever met him with a great sadness. A few positive things have happened lately that have given us all hope that Ryan is fighting on the road to recovery.

This is being posted around the net from a close friend of Ryan and Essay’s so I am going to repost it here for those wondering how you can help as well.

“Many of you have been asking what you can do to help Ryan Jones and Essay Hood. Although all the offers of food and visits are appreciated more than you know, during this overwhelming time what they really need is your prayers. Essay has agreed to allow me to share her PayPal account for those of you that wish to offer more material help – she is not working right now so that she can be with Ryan, so things like rent, gas and food are needed. If you wish to make a monetary donation, please send it to samirien@juno.com or contact me directly for alternate methods such as snail mail, hand delivery, etc… All of us are so very grateful for your love and support, and we ask that you continue to offer prayers on Ryan and Essay’s behalf.

Please repost as you see fit.


The Garrison and Legion are pulling for you Ryan. We all can’t wait to see your smiling face again!
