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.

Good Luck, Jena!

We went to Jena's send-off party last night. She is headed out to California for the Miss Teen USA pageant that will air on TV Aug. 24. She looked beautiful, as usual. Ryan gave her a drawing of her on stage with people throwing flowers at her. She gave him a wrestling mask for his birthday. He loved it and was so animated when he put it on. We are back this morning for Day 4 of chemo. Heidi, Will, and Gramma came with us. He will probably get blood today also, which will make for a very long day. Thanks for checking in on us. Please continue to pray for a cure for all cancers. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
