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.

Here is the latest wish of my little thrill-seeker. Don't sign me up to have my head examined, yet. This one isn't actually his (but he is wanting one awfully bad). His soccer coach Thomas brought his family and a few bikes over last night for Ryan to check out. I was absolutely shocked when he jumped on it and took off. He rode up and down, back and forth, and actually the four-wheeler trail once with it. Now he is absolutely insistent that we get one, TODAY! We are looking forward to our day at the lake with the Pecks, but we will miss Julie.
Gramma left early this morning. We all enjoyed her visit so much and hate to see her go home. We had really been looking forward to a trip back to Vancouver Island in August, but maybe next year!! Thanks for checking in on Ryan, and have an awesome weekend with your family. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan

Guest Book:
Hi Ryan - long time follower - very rare signer. :-( Sorry about that.

Anyway, here's hoping you continue to feel better each and every day, and that you don't get hurt (or scare the wits out of your parents) on those motorcycles.

I was catching up on the last few journal entries and saw that you are friends with the Pecks. I went to high school with Smith. He seems to be popping up everywhere these days, I saw him on the news the other day. Is he still as crazy as he was then?

Hope you know that you are in my prayers constantly.
