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.

More gray area...more gray hair

I was seriously hoping for a call from Ryan's nurse Erica but when Dr. George called you just know something is up. The MIBG scan has shown a greater "uptake" in the same area of Ryan's liver as before...not good news. However, the CT report has the surrounding area clear according to Radiology. Dr. George will make his way to Radiology this afternoon to re-read the CT scans with a very sharp eye. We should hear back by tomorrow. If there is any sign of tumor, it would be biopsied and confirmed, however the surgery is just too risky in that location (just below his heart) to jump the gun and biopsy without visible confirmation first. Either way, it looks like Ryan will likely be repeating the scans again in 6 weeks. Love Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
