When she’s not filming reality shows, running her fashion business and taking care of her daughter, Cheyenne Floyd runs a non-profit organization. She and Cory Wharton launched Rage Regardless Ry in honor of their daughter, Ryder.
Ryder was born with a rare genetic disorder called VLCAD (very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency). According to the National Institutes of Health, VLCAD is a “condition that prevents the body from converting certain fats into energy, especially during periods without food.” The signs and symptoms of VLCAD deficiency usually appear during infancy or infancy and may include low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), lack of energy (lethargy) and muscle weakness. Those affected are also at risk for serious complications such as liver abnormalities and life-threatening heart problems. ”

Floyd and Wharton flirted during their season on the show together, but say they did not get together until the reunion show. Floyd has said she was dating someone else at the time she and Wharton hooked up, therefore she had to rely on a DNA test to determine Ryder’s paternity.
Wharton is currently competing on The Challenge: Total Madness, but he and Floyd’s co-parenting dynamic is also playing out on Teen Mom OG. Wharton is expecting a second child with girlfriend Taylor Selfridge. His personal life is bound to be a topic of conversation at some point while he and the other Challengers are living in their underground bunker.
Rage Regardless Ry was founded to help support families raising children with metabolic conditions. Floyd and Wharton also explained on the site that they wanted to raise awareness and knowledge about VLCAD. Floyd also shares updated about her daughter’s life on her YouTube channel, “Cheyenne and Ryder K.”

Crazy, right? That sperm knew what they wanted! My sperm went right up and created a baby and now I’m here.”
