Ryder did well after each of the surgeries and was able to resume playing football.

However, by 2012, Ryder’s ejection fraction -- a measurement of how much blood the heart pumps out to the body during each beat -- had dropped to just 10% compared to a normal range of 50 to 60%. That’s when doctors approached him about implanting a device to bridge him to a heart transplant.
