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.

Pretty in Pink

First we had the Prince of Hope, and now we've got a Blue and Gold Queen. Thanks to our family and friends for coming out last night to support Heidi. We could not have been more proud of her. Ryan and Will went home with their friend, Jackson, after the pageant, and Heidi's friends came home with us. Everyone got to play today; the boys in the dirt at Coach Mark's house and Heidi and her friends at the mall-how very typical. The kids are happy to be out of school tomorrow for the MLK holiday. We are hoping to get his catecholomine numbers, and will probably take in a movie with some friends. Please continue to pray for Ryan, that he stays healthy and happy. Love Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan.
