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.

Insight from our beautiful 12 year old

If I Were In Charge Of The World
If I were in charge of the world
I'd get rid of braces,
Homework, and
Hurricanes, too.
If I were in charge of the world
There'd be flying horses,
Elephants would be the size of a basketball, and
There'd be louder alarm clocks.
If I were in charge of the world
There wouldn't be mean,
mortification, or
even Cancer.
There wouldn't be cheesecake, or
raisins, either.
If I were in charge of the world
A sock would be called pencil, and
A tomato would not be a fruit.
And a person who sometimes digresses, and
Is most of the time forgetful,
Would still be allowed to be
In charge of the world.
