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.

This was a "Good Friday"

There are so many people we want to thank for tonight's concert and dinner. We still don't even know everyone that needs to be thanked, we just know a lot of wonderful people worked very hard putting this evening together. The barbecue was absolutely delicious. Ryan's favorite part was the icing on the cupcakes. The music, fellowship, and genuine words of faith and encouragement uplifted us greatly. Witnessing the conviction of faith that emanated from these talented groups of artists (see pictures) was overwhelming and so very moving. I think we all felt the presence of our Good Lord filling our souls. We will compile a complete list, but for now, thank you to everyone who participated tonight. We feel completely and totally blessed. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
