- 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.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS !!
Everyone here on the homefront is doing well, except for the colds that are circulating. No big deal. The really big deal was Will's soccer team. After clinching the Division II Championship, they moved onto the Kohl's America Cup. Yesterday, we saw two very physical games. We won the first and tied the second. Will was very excited to go back this morning, and they easily won the first game securing a position in the final game. It was incredibly tense and exciting. The game ended in a 1-1 tie and Will's team finally took it in double overtime. I haven't seen so many boys this happy in a long time. They should be really proud of themselves. They have worked so hard all season and deserve this win. They have decided to end the season on this great high and will not be going to Savannah for the tournament there. It works out great for us because we will be able to see all our friends at the Lighthouse Christmas party that weekend. We took the kids to the Gwinnett Gladiators hockey game on Saturday night. They love chucking their puck and eating Dippin' Dots. We would go just about anywhere to get Ryan to eat ice cream. :) Thank you so much for checking in on us. Hope you have an awesome week with your families. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
