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.

Please pray for Catie's family

The horrible beast has taken yet another of our little friends. I was heartbroken to hear of Catie's passing last night, and now I am so very angry. I am just so tired of these small children having to live with and die from Cancer. Where is our cure?? When is it coming?? Why aren't they doing more to get it here now?? The extravagance and waste that I see on TV everyday just absolutely sickens me. Catie's parents are very strong, but certainly need your prayers. They are to welcome their second child into this world in about a week. Please pray that they will be able to feel the joy that the birth of a child should bring. I know I have posted a link to their website before, but if you can't find it in previous journal entries you can visit their site at .
