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.

Happy Birthday, Dear Ryan !!

Just a quick post, as it is busy around here with a little 7 year old running around wanting to open presents. His buddy, Matt, came over and spent last night with him, and we are off to the movies and to play. Last year, on his birthday, all his hair fell out. The picture in yesterday's AJC was so adorable with all the kids giving a "parade wave". Please pray for our friend, Ethan, who is inpatient at this time fighting an unexplained fever. They are really struggling, and our hearts are breaking for them. Love, Les & Missy
