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.

sailing into the wild blue yonder

Aboard the Disney Wonder!! The limo will be here in an hour. We are packed and ready to roll. We couldn't possibly have forgotten anything, right? We had an early start yesterday with our Swim Meet, 8 am warm-ups. The pool is still so cold with all the rain lately. A couple of the little 6 and unders jumped in, turned around, and jumped right back out. In all the years our kids have been swimming, I have never seen that! Ryan did well despite the cold. Nanny and Granddaddy came over to see the kids before bedtime. Thanks for the spending money. Ryan got upset once tucked into his bed. He is going to miss home. He should get over that pretty quickly. Bon Voyage!!
