- Name: Ryan
- Location: Athens, Ga, United States
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.

Just Can't Catch a Break
Les just called and they are in room 322. Ryan's last temp was 102 :(
Great game on tuesday! I can see why your site has "Super Ryan" in it. You are a super soccer player and I'm willing to bet you are super in many other ways also. Just wanted to let you know we won our game on thursday. I told the team since, you had not been feeling good the week before and you came out tuesday and gave 110% that they needed to do the same. You were our insperation. I hope you like the boots I sent you, maybe we can go riding togather when you get to feeling better. Hang in there buddy and as an old coach told me "everything starts with your heart, you can be as big as you want and and fast as you want but if you don't have heart your not going any where!"
Now I know what he ment when I see how much heart you have. Ryan, be strong and thank you! You are in my prayers.
