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.

Getting back in the routine

Everything here has been going pretty smooth. The kids are all adjusting to being back to school, and I am getting used to working more. I am loving being at Ryan's school. I had lunch with him and Matt today. We left school early and went for his ENT appt. Dr. Stolovitsky wants to go ahead and take out his adenoids. The meds seemed to work for about a week, and then one side of his nose started running again. Les and I will talk about it and talk to the docs at the clinic just to make sure the risk is no greater. Soccer has started up, but we still have a few weekends free before the games begin. We are sure going to enjoy them. Thanks for checking in on us and for your prayers for Ryan. Please continue to pray that we stay on this road to a cure and for all our cancer buddies. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
