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.

We're gettin' there!!

Ryan's scan this morning showed a significant decrease in disease. We have been very happy about that all day. We just heard from the bone biopsy/aspirate results. One side is clear, but not the other. Same results as last time. Dr. George indicated we would wait another couple of rounds before we repeat it. We are about finished with Day 3, and will be off to watch Heidi and Will swim in Gainesville. We will be celebrating our little victory tonight that Ryan's cancer is responding very well to the medicines. Please continue to pray that he won't get sick after this round, that his marrows will come clear, and, of course, for a cure for him and all the children with this disease. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
