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.

Going to try another scan

We heard back from Dr. George, and nothing shows up on the CT Scan. He is puzzled. He would like to do a PET Scan at Emory if our insurance company will pay for it. Les is going to add a link later that tells about it. I think he said it costs about $6,000. I guess that is where we go from here. Please, please, please continue to pray for no cancer in Ryan's body. And, please pray for Victor Lord's family. "Mr. Victor", as my kid's call him passed away yesterday. He was always someone special to see on the soccer fields and Ryan thought the world of him. Thank you all for thinking of us and praying for Ryan. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and Ryan
