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.

Great numbers!!

We heard from Erica this afternoon. Ryan's catecholomine numbers are all in the normal range. His VMA is 5.9 (normal is 0-9) and his HVA is 7.7 (Normal is 0-15). Both of these went up slightly from last month, but nothing to worry about. At diagnosis, these numbers were around 300. So, we take this as another sign that his cancer has not returned. Please keep praying for that. The kids have been enjoying their Fall Break. They spent Sunday night at my Mom and Dad's and last night at their friend's, the Greshams. I will be glad to have them all home tonight. Thanks for checking in on us. Hope you have a great week. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
