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.

Ryan had a good check-up today at the clinic. His counts were good and he didn't need blood or platelets. Yea!! He was tired, but perked up for some ice cream on the way home. He ate more tonight and seems to feel a little better every day. He got letters and a video message from his class and absolutely loved it. We got another surprise Friday night when Deanna and Cindy from FORM came by and brought us gift cards for gas, groceries, and movie rentals. This group is so phenomenal. Thank ya'll once again. Please continue your prayers for Ryan and all the children that we have met along the way.
