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.

Chemo finally started

We finally got the chemo running at 10:30 last night. I am really not expecting him to be sick, at least not today. I remember it took a few days for the really sickening drugs to effect him before, and they don't expect him to have much trouble with these two. They will only move the chemo back 4 hours, so we can't start today until 6:30, so I guess we will be camping here another night. We may try and get a day pass today and get out of here for awhile. He won't be hooked up to anything, so it will be tough keeping him entertained. I am going to see if I can get him an appt. to get his hair trimmed. Thanks for all your prayers. Keep 'em coming! :) Much Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
