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.

Get Your Cup of Alex's Lemonade

You can buy a cup of Alex's Lemonade this Saturday at any Macy's. I think the hours are from 11 to 5. Isn't it just fabulous that Macy's is helping in such a big way?? Ryan has been feeling great lately. We will head down to Emory tomorrow morning for his PET scan. Hopefully, we have it all worked out with the sedation team. It has been a little confusing this past week. I have talked to people in so many different departments. I just hope they are talking to each other and we are all on the same page. We want to be able to make it to see Dr. Marcus at 11. We don't look for results until Thursday. He will see Dr.s Anderson and either George or Rapkin after his CT scan. We had a fun swim meet Saturday morning. Ryan had the quote for the day: "I got 2 blue ribbons. One for my relay, and I found one!!" What more could you ask for? Please keep praying for clear scans, and little Jacob Duckworth could use your prayers, also. We will post when we get results. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
