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.

Heads Up!

Hope all of ya'll had a very blessed Easter. We had a great day with my family. We got a call yesterday afternoon and Ryan's MIBG injection is scheduled for today at 3 with the scan tomorrow at 3. His CT scan is next Wed. Haven't heard yet on repeating the urine test. His scans were supposed to take place in May, so this is just moving them up a bit. One thing is for sure: we don't have much time to worry about it. Please say big prayers that the rise in his catecholomines is nothing but a fluke. And, if you can throw in one for my nerves that would be great, too! Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
