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.

School's out for summer!

Ryan went to school 4 days last week. He had a lot of fun with all the end of year activities. The picture above is him and some of his buddies with their school awards. We had fun yesterday. His friend, Matt, came to play, and Ryan went home with him to spend the night. Our friend, Kellie, also came out to our house for some fun. As you can see, they strapped "Peg" to a major bottle rocket and sent her off. This little doll has been the object of, well, basically abuse. Ryan cut her hair, clothes, arms, and legs off (thus, she is Peg). We are looking forward to a fun, relaxing Memorial Day weekend. Hope ya'll have the same. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
