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.

Test tomorrow

Ryan played his entire soccer game last night. He played hard, too, and then he wanted to hang out at the soccer field and watch Will's team practice. Thanks, Jena, for coming to his game and for taking pictures for me. He woke up this morning feeling ill. He stayed home, and has gradually felt better during the day.
The hospital called this afternoon and had Ryan's nuclear bone scan scheduled for 11:00am tomorrow. We need to arrive at 7:00am for the injection. Hopefully he will feel well enough in the morning to make it through the long scan alright. Once this data is added they will "stage" him. Ryan's original diagnoses had him at a stage 4. I pray he will come in below that. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
