- 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.

Happy Birthday, Henry
soccer teams raised $300. We are so appreciative of our coaches and all our generous parents. Will is very excited about their tournament in Stone Mountain this weekend. Heidi and Ryan are excited to not be going :0). They will spend the day Saturday with their friends, and they may go Sunday as it may not be such a long day. Thank you all for continuing to think of us and to pray for Ryan and his friends. They need you and we need you, and we feel so fortunate to have so many who care and who ask God everyday for Ryan's cure and good health. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
