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.

Good results from the clinic

We heard from Erika this afternoon, and Ryan's catecholomine numbers dropped 2/10 of a point, so that is great. Another indicator that his cancer has not returned- we'll take it. Will and I both made it back to school today. Ryan is feeling great. He has his last soccer practice tonight and his last game on Thursday. Les and I have been asked to speak at the “Play To Win” Charity Tennis Tournament Benefiting CURE Childhood Cancer this Friday at Chateau Elan. I am a little nervous, but we are so excited to be able to help raise money to find the cure. Wish us luck!! Hope you have a great week. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
