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.

Urgent prayers for Ethan, please

I woke up this morning to some frightening and terrible news. Our friend, Ethan, is back in the hospital with fever and pain, and they have found new tumors on his remaining kidney and possibly in his lungs. He is the sweetest 4 year old boy that was across the hall from us at transplant. Please pray for strength for his parents, Julie and Chris, and for his brother and sister, Ryan and Haley. Ethan has Wilm's Tumor that comes from the kidney. Treatment options seems few at this point as he has already had very aggressive therapy. Please pray that the cancer has not spread to his lungs, for a good treatment plan, and for strength for Ethan to endure. The Alain's are a special family and could greatly use words of encouragement. You can click on his link to offer your prayer and support.
