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.

Both Ryan and Dawgs, Hot

Ryan's fever just keeps creeping back on him. He was 103 at 10 last night, then good until 6 tonight when it spiked at 103 again. That always adds another day :( Our nurse unhooked Ryan for a couple hours and we cruised over to Perimeter Mall and shared an ice cream sundae. We were hoping get out Sunday night, but we are crossing our fingers for Monday. His mouth and gums are improving thanks to the rinses. Missy, Will, Lanne, Macie and Smith got to go see Georgia spank Troy State's butt at Sanford Stadium this afternoon. Will really loves football. It was a beautiful fall day for it. Heidi's soccer game ended in a tie with one of the toughest teams in the league even though they only had nine players make it. One more weekend left for her and soccer. She made the high school basketball team. She is very happy about that. She will also be playing rec. basketball. Seems like an awful full plate to me!
Take care and send Ryan some positive thoughts to help break him out !! Les, Missy, Will, Heidi and SuperRyan
