The Sioux City Musketeers, in partnership with Floyd Valley Healthcare (FVH), announced a new program this summer called Hot Shots. This program was created with the goal of honoring FVH pediatric patients with chronic health issues. We want to give children an opportunity to have fun with their family, cheer on the team and just enjoy being a kid again for a night. The 2018-2019 Hot Shots have been chosen and we are excited to introduce them!

Riley is a very unique, headstrong and bright 11 year old that attends the 6th grade in Le Mars. He is on the autism spectrum and has been reaching goal after goal as he and his family work through some of his social challenges. He enjoys going to school and has recently gotten into sports. Rylie’s mom, Jessica, says, "Rylie does not let just anyone touch and interact with him, but Dr. Jolene Meis is amazing. She has had his back from the get go. We always get answers and the best results.”
Autism is known as a “spectrum” disorder because there is wide variation in the type and severity of symptoms people experience. Most autistic children have difficulty with communication and interaction with other people, restricted interests, repetitive behaviors and symptoms that hurt the person’s ability to function properly in school, work, and other areas of life. They may also have trouble settling down, social awkwardness, impulsivity and the ability to focus only on things that interest them. Although researchers don’t understand the exact causes of autism, there seems to be a strong genetic component that can act together with influences from the environment to affect development in ways that lead to autism.
Please join us in celebrating Rylie, our April Hot Shot!
