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.

Not close enough!

Just a quick update to let you know he didn't get his line placed today. His counts were not quite high enough yesterday and he is to go back tomorrow morning. He will probably get his line put in on Monday which is kind of a bummer since I have my chemo and dr appts set up for Monday. He will probably be at Egleston and I will be just across at the Winship. At least I can walk over and check on him throughout the day. Thanks to everyone who has sent cards and emails of support over the last several weeks. Your encouragement has been very uplifting. Please continue to pray for Ryan and all the children fighting this terrible disease. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
