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.

One down, but many more to go

Ryan's chemo started early this morning. He has been pure entertainment for a couple days now. The docs and nurses just love to see the real Ryan, and we love them getting to see his real spirit. His nanny and grand-daddy came today and had a great visit. He already misses Heidi and Will a lot. We are hoping he will still feel well enough on Sunday for a visit. Caroline got her stem cell transplant on Wednesday. It seems to have gone well. Hayley's mom has updated her site and included a recent article from Brandon's mom. I am going to try and give a link to the article in a day or so, but you can check it out on Hayley's site. Her address is below. We are hoping for a smoother stay this go-around. We do have room for improvement. Please keep praying.
