Fund established for baby's medical bills
A fund has been established in the name of Ryan David Wyatt to help his family with expenses incurred because of medical complications the newborn has developed.
Wyatt is the son of Rod and Carol Wyatt of Steamboat Springs. The infant was born Oct. 27 at Yampa Valley Medical Center but had to be flown to Denver on Oct. 30 because of heart and lung complications. The infant is in stable condition at St. Luke's Presbyterian Hospital. Anyone wishing to assist the family may do so through contributions to the Ryan David Wyatt fund at Vectra Bank in Steamboat Springs
