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.

Week long r & r starts today, Yeah !

We were released from Scottish Rite early yesterday morning. Ryan got platelets before we left, and we headed to the pool to watch Heidi and Will. They swam very well. Ryan's friend, Jena, came for a visit. They had a great time as you can see. Ryan was happy to jump in the pool at home and sleep in his own bed last night. We are off to visit his friend, Jorge, today. He has planned a Brazilian BBQ, swimming and a race car ride for Ryan and then we head to the Lighthouse tomorrow. We are so looking forward to a week at the beach with our friends. Thank you for your prayers for Ryan. Please continue to pray for him and for everyone battling cancer, and, of course, for a cure. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
