- 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.

So long Todd
I can't believe our sweet girl is 13 already. We celebrated Heidi's birthday here at home on Wednesday with my parents, and tomorrow she will have a bunch of friends here for a party. Ryan is going to spend the night with his friend, Max, and Will is off to spend the night with one of his buddies. Ryan took a karate test on Wed. and was awarded his green belt. He got to break another board which he loves. My dad cut him a board to break at home. It makes him feel so strong!! He is going to take some time off from karate while he plays soccer this spring. We had to find a new home for one of our dogs. Todd has gone to live with a nice family with a fenced-in yard. He just won't stay home like Teddie. The first family to see him snapped him up. The kids really loved him. If we had more acreage he might have been able to stay. Heidi is pretty upset and we haven't told Ryan yet, he was very upset just thinking about losing him. We'll let him know tomorrow :( Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
