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.

We Just Couldn't Wait Another Day!!

We have been enjoying these warm days, maybe a little too much. Ryan, Dad, and Will rode bikes, played basketball, and, in general, had a busy day goofing around. He started running a temp. around 8:00 last night so we came straight to Egleston where we got a room around 3:00 this morning. He has had no more fever and has eaten steadily all day. We are going to be moved into a BMT room this afternoon. The drs. have decided to push his transplant back one day. We will start chemo on Thursday and his transplant will actually take place on Jan.13. We were bummed to lose our last day at home and we really had no formal send-off for Heidi and Will to say their good-byes, but we are anxious to get started and get the show on the road. Sooner started, sooner finished. Please continue to pray for Ryan's cure. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
