spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia dwarfism and the difficulties his family faced
when his father lost his job because his employer did not want to have to cover
Ryan’s health care and treatment costs. When asked about being selected to
speak 2016 DNC Moore stated, “I was completely shocked when I found out I was
being asked to speak at the DNC. It’s such an honor and privilege to take part
in this historic event! I’m so glad to be able to represent the state of
Nebraska in this speech, and hope and pray that I make my home state proud.”
