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.

Spring Break, Oh Yeah!!

We have had beautiful weather here at the beach. Today is a good bit chillier, but we were ready for a little break. Ryan is off with Will and Dad to buy a prank toy. He loves pulling tricks on all of us! As you can see, we had a big surprise on the beach Sunday morning- a baby alligator. Ryan built a wall in hopes of keeping it from going back in the water. They were waiting for someone to rescue it. Unfortunately, quite a crowd gathered and it went back in the ocean. Thanks for your emails and posts on this site. Your support has gotten us through so many rough days. We are soaking up all the children and really enjoying our time away and together alone, but we are missing Mackie and home. Please continue to pray for Ryan. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
