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.

More good test results

We got Ryan's urine results this morning from the clinic. Everything looks great. His numbers actually came down a little bit. His blood counts were good, and then Dr. Anderson called with the CT results. Everything looks good there, too. Nothing showed up in his liver or anywhere!! We thank God constantly and pray for his continued good health. We are enjoying a little slower pace this week. I have to try and get Ryan ready for a week at Camp Sunshine. He goes there the day after we get back from the Lighthouse. We are headed to the Ga. Aquarium on Thursday. We have not been yet, so that will be a big treat. I just hope our legs don't give out on us. Thanks for checking in on us and for your continued prayers for Ryan. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
