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.

Ryan's Dr. called this evening to give us the bone scan news we had been dreading. There is activity similar to his original diagnosis. It is just so hard to comprehend how fast the cancer has moved. How can he go from clear, to stage 4 again in less than 3 months? We are still in a state of disbelief and just trying to catch our breath. We desperately need these rounds of chemo to get this monster back under control and pray that we are lead in the right direction to bring Ryan back to remission. Please pray for Ryan. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan

Guest Book:
Hey! So sorry to hear of this horrible news. Praying for God to take away all the cancer from every part of Ryan's precious body.
