Fundraiser being held for Coral Springs boy with rare genetic disorder

Ryan Ogden's verbal skills extremely minimal, only able to answer yes or no questions

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - Ryan Ogden is a happy 10-year-old boy, but he was born with a rare genetic disorder called chromosome 15q duplication syndrome.

Ryan's verbal skills are extremely minimal and he is only able to answer yes or no questions.

Brandon Dietrich, in an act of great generosity, was able to help Ryan with his expensive and necessary therapies and schooling.

Both Ryan and Dietrich have parents in the Fort Lauderdale Police Force, and both couples are touched by Dietrich's act of kindness.

A fundraiser will be held for Ryan this Sunday.
