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.

Willie Wonka Jr. and the Chocolate Factory

The chocolate factory has finally arrived!! He has wanted this for so long, and we finally ordered it to keep him calm and distracted during one of his last dressing changes at Egleston. He had such fun making chocolate bears, flags, shells, and heart lollipops. Now, if we can get him to eat them. If you click on the picture, you can see his hair coming in and his cowlick is definitely back. :) His buddy, Matt, is going to Six Flags with us in a few days. All of the kids are looking forward to that and being out of school. No other news, isn't that wonderful?
