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.

False Start

We got down to Scottish this morning fired up and ready to go. We sailed through the check up but the labs said Ryan would be getting blood instead of chemo. It took 2 hours to get blood up stairs then 3 hours to infuse. Thanks Smith for bringing us lunch and hanging with us. So chemo has pushed back a week. We are going to the Thrashers hockey game next Saturday. We will be participating in a little street hockey game outside the rink before and the crazy thing is Ryan might be helping to drop the puck at the start of the NHL game. I am hoping Will can help too. Missy's chemo went smooth today. I think the hardest part for her is all the stores she has to pass between downtown Atlanta and here, and the small amount of time left in the day to stop in ; ) Have a great week, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan.
