- 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.

Test Drive a Volvo...
Volvo will donate $20 to Alex's Lemonade Stand for simply taking a test drive. It only lasts until Oct. 16. Sorry for the late notice, but I just found out about it. You can visit Alex's Lemonade link at the side and then scroll down to the Volvo link for further details. If you're a golfer, don't forget about theCureSearch Hayley Thomson Challenge that will be held Monday, November 14 at Cherokee Country Club. Visit www.curesearchhayley.golfreg.com to get more information. Ryan got a good check up from Dr. Nadia. Dr. Marcus was stuck out of town. They want us to come back in 6 months for another check-up. Ugh! I can't really complain, though. Six months is nothing. Before you know it, we will be starting our check-ups with Dr. George only every three months. We won't know how to act without our at least monthly visits to Atlanta. Well, that's it for now. Ryan did great at his soccer game last night. His Nanny and Grand-daddy came out to watch him play. Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. We so appreciate it. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
