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.

Ryan had his ultrasound scan this afternoon. The UT tech scanned and recorded images for almost 45 minutes then left to discuss results with a doctor. They both came back into the room and this time the doctor lubed him up for a couple more passes just to be on the cautious side. To them, all of the images showed no sign of tumour. Our doctors will be reviewing the scans tomorrow with likely the same analysis. The news brought a sigh of relief and should hold us over until Ryan's early September re-do of the CT and MIBG scans and they both come back clear also, (fingers crossed). Thanks so much for holding Ryan tight in your hearts, we feel it everyday. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
