Our son Ryan was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2004. In 2007, my wife Missy was diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer. On July 8th, 2009, Missy lost her battle to this horrible disease. 2 days later, on July 10th, Ryan also lost his. Together forever, they both watch over our family now from the heavens above. Below is our families journey through Ryan's treatments, along with the joy and laughter we tried to instill into our daily lives. Those days helped us all cope with the pain and suffering that comes with cancer and it's deadly treatments. Both Missy and Ryan endured high doses of chemo, radiation and surgeries. Over 150 nights spent in the hospital and many, many more days. More transfusions than I could count. Yet both Missy and Ryan took on each day with a positive attitude and warm smile for all their friends. We miss them terribly. They will always be a shining light in our lives.

Just can't wait till morning...

The kids are so excited about tomorrow, the timing on this hospital break between transplants could not have been better. With the kids out of school and Santa coming, Ryan is in a completely different (better) world than he has been used to. "FORM" sent us a very special treat two nights ago...see below. Thank you to all for your continued prayers, support, gifts, cards and love, it has been received from all over the US and Canada. Going through the daily routines are so much easier knowing we have friends like you out there helping to make Ryan better.

Thank you, thank you, and have a very Merry Christmas!

Les & Missy
