Five-Year-Old Texas Church Shooting Survivor Has Just One Christmas Wish This Year

Even though he’s still recovering in the hospital, this young warrior hopes to receive some Christmas cheer this holiday season.

Ryland Ward is a five-year-old survivor of the recent Sutherland Springs church shooting that ended the lives of his mother and sisters. Despite the tragedy he’s faced and the tough road to recovery ahead, his grandmother says he still has a positive spirit.

“You got so many nice people that are sending a card and a dollar to Ryland,” she said. “He does really enjoy that a lot.”

The Ward family is now asking for Christmas cards to be sent to Ryland, hoping to fill him with joy during his long hospital stay.

If you want to send a card, here’s the address:
