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.

Getting moving.....

Just a quick update. We got Ryan's counts back today and everything is headed up. We hope his platelets will be high enough for chemo on Monday. I have two appts scheduled next week at Emory. I will see a surgeon, Dr. Wood, on Tuesday and the oncologist, Dr. O'Regan, on Wed. It will be so great to get started. Les and I are headed up to a B & B in the mountains tomorrow for just a little escape and to get our game faces on. We will definitely be ready by Tuesday. Thanks again, for all ya'll's messages. They have really given me a lot of strength and encouragement. Have an awesome weekend. Hope ya'll got some rain. We got just a little and it was so great! The picture is of one of my hanging baskets my mom made for me. The heat is doing a number on them. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
