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.

Please say a prayer for our little buddy, Luke

I got a call tonight from a new friend we made at our Lighthouse trip in June. Her son, Luke, is back in the hospital in Orlando. He started complaining of pain in his leg and a bone scan lit up. Aspirates of his marrow have come back positive and they are facing an MIBG tomorrow. Please pray for their courage and strength. They are such a sweet and adorable family. You can visit their site at and see pictures of Luke's cute little face. Chemo went ok today. My friend, Diane, came back to keep Ryan company and play games. She brought him some teriyaki wings-one of his favorite things! We got the pictures back from Flashes of Hope yesterday,and are they ever beautiful!! They are all black and white and we will post a few soon. Please keep praying for Ryan and all his friends. Luke's mom and dad are just reeling from this blow and could really use our prayers. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
