- 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 one more day!!
I just wanted to stop by and say hi! I can't believe that it has already been a week since we left Rosemary Beach. I was thinking about you today as I drove through Winder...or around Winder. I'm in Athens visiting one of my friends, and I was in Commerce this morning for one of her bridal showers. I am sure that you are very excited to see Ryan! I'm sure that he had a blast at Camp Sunshine!
I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
