- Name: Ryan
- Location: Athens, Ga, United States
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.

A fun Dentist visit ?????
Ryan has had a little complex about his teeth over the last couple years. They have yellowed quite a bit. I shot out a few emails to cosmetic dentists to see if whitening would be an option for him. The Atlanta Center For Cosmetic Dentistry called us back and said they would love to work with Ryan! Whitening isn't normally done until 14 but they made an exception. We would like to thanks Christina, Angela and the whole team for treating Ryan so wonderfully. It's tough to find a dentist that serves snacks, massages, warm blankets and warm neck pillows. They gave Ryan one to take home, he loves it so much. Another apparatus they let him keep was a "cheek spreader". It was sooo funny. He had that thing in his mouth the whole way home! I told him he'd better be careful or his mouth may stay like that. Ryan will do the "tray whitening" technique for two weeks then go back for a check up. He's already looking forward to that. I will post a couple pics when they send them to me. Thanks again, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
