- Name: Ryan
- Location: Athens, Ga, United States
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.

Back to the Pediatrician today
Ryan went on to school this morning and stayed until lunch time. We are so thankful for our friends at school that take such good care of him. Thank you, Valerie, for letting him rest on your bean bag and for giving him some Sprite. Les took him back to the Pediatrician to see about his ear and his eye that was really red. We have about every medicine we could possibly need at home, except pink eye medicine. He has another ear infection and pink eye. So, he is on a different antibiotic, and eye-drops, which he hates. He got some good rest after he got home. I couldn't begin to guess how he will feel in the morning. I will have to call to see if they will still do the hearing test on Thursday. I certainly don't want to go and hang out for several hours at Scottish Rite!! Been there, done that a few times. Please pray that Ryan will be able tolerate the eye drops and that the medicines will do their job so he will feel better quickly. Thank you so much for your prayers. We are lucky, too, to have all our prayer warriors out there. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
