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.

Ryan and Will have about emptied the game closet here at the hospital. Ryan put a dollar bill on a note on his door for Dr. B. asking to go home and offering more where that came from. He seems to feel great, but Dr. B is afraid that if we go home and they stop the antibiotics, Ryan will be right back in the ER. He still hasn't had any fever and his white count went up to 1.4, but I found out today they are watching a number in his blood that indicates infection. This number is "going down nicely", but with his low white count, we have won another night here at Scottish. Our Lighthouse friends, the Howards, are on their way to visit with him, and that will surely perk him up. His grand-daddy is coming back, too. Will has to go home for soccer tonight and school tomorrow. Thanks for checking in on us. Please keep praying for Ryan and all his friends. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
