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.

Can't he get a break?

Ryan is still not feeling well. Dr. Morrison thinks he must have a virus. The strep test was negative and his counts are all good. I can't tell you how thankful I am that his nose is thick and runny and he has a sore throat. I am just ready for it to go away now. He was so disappointed to miss swim team practice and karate last night. Mr. Pattillo gave him a black karate outfit, and he is anxious to get into it. He has been looking forward to playing in a soccer tournament that starts tonight, but there is no way he could begin to feel better enough at this point. Please say a prayer for him that this virus will go away quickly and he can enjoy all the things in store for him. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
