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.

Thank you Cure and Atlanta Thrashers

Today was a day I have been looking forward to for a while. I got to flip my Aflac calendar to February and see Ryan's beautiful drawing of me and Les. I will enjoy seeing it everyday, and I know many of ya'll will too. We are having a wonderful week. Ryan is feeling great with lots of energy. The kids had tons of fun today at Jillian's bowling and playing games with Cure and the Atlanta Thrashers. Thank ya'll so much. We took lots of pictures, but the wild lights at Jillian's totally freaked out my camera. All the kids got t-shirts and an Atlanta Thrasher autographed.jersey. Our boys will be wearing theirs to school tomorrow for sure. Thanks for checking in on us and please keep praying for Ryan and his little friends. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
