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.

Happy little boy...

Ryan was given the Get Outta Jail Card this morning. I wasn't there but I could feel the smile from here! His Grandaddy camped out with him last night and all went well. I hope he didn't think we planned it this way cause loading up all the stuff Missy brings along with the stuff collected over the days, is a big chore! Thanks again Granddaddy. We are all so happy when Ryan's happy. We are praying hard that this won't be the norm over his next 5 rounds of chemo. We have agreed that we will treat him like we did during his stem cell transplants and really watch what he eats and touches, along with plenty of hand washing. Turned out to be a pretty good Monday after all.
Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
