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.

Want it ? You got it !

Things we needed done:

Can we have a short chemo week so we could take Ryan to the mountains over fall break?
Can we start early in the morning so we can get home at a decent hour?
Would you schedule his MIBG injection and scan while we are already there for chemo next week?
Can you get our insurance to pay for Ryan's stem cell harvest?
Can you co-ordinate his Neupogen shots, surgery, the stem cell rescue and his new ABT-751 trial schedule?
"No problem"
Is there anything else we can do a the moment?
"No, we're good"!!!

That's pretty much what I would call "a great day" in our cancer world. Thanks for the good news Erica. Love Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
