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.

Cancer Fundraising In Full Swing

Ryan is so proud of himself. He can swallow both of his pills at the same time!! He is having some dry skin on his face and his lips are so dry, but we are trying our best to keep him lubed up. We survived the strong winds and cheered on the end of the Tour de Georgia today. We met Kristen Conner and Melinda and Robin from the Lighthouse. It was nice to see familiar faces from Scottish. On Saturday, we went out to the UGA Chi Omega's kickball tournament to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They had an incredible turn out of students supporting their effort. They were happy to meet Ryan and hear about his upcoming wish trip. I will post some pictures tomorrow. Thanks for your continued prayers.
