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.

A million bucks, Wow!

Yes, WSB raised over a million dollars for the Aflac Cancer Center at Scottish Rite and Egleston. Isn't that awesome? Thank you to everyone who contributed. Ryan's teacher let their class listen to him on the radio. He had a really good weekend. He had enough paying customers at his yard sale to get a few new Power Ranger and Star Wars toys. How many light sabers can one kid want? He seems to be feeling great, is eating good, and has plenty of energy. He goes back to the dr. for a check up next Thursday. I am trying not to think about it and only focus on the positives. Heidi and Will are off to sibling camp this weekend at Camp Sunshine. They are excited about it, but not Ryan. He misses them when they are not around. He has a birthday party to attend, so that will be fun for him. Please keep us in your prayers. Thanks, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
