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.

Smiles for Ryan...

He got his new tubes out. The reality is no stem cells can be collected. He just can't produce whats needed anymore. So the last month of high doses of Cytoxan, hospital stays, neupogen shots and surgery resulted in zero for Ryan. It is horrible that he had to go through it all. He's happy today though. He can bring a smile out of anyone at anytime :) Love Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan.

Guest Book:
Love and prayers for you all. I count you among my blessings and I am thankful for you. I'm sorry the tubies didn't work. We will pray for wisdom in the next step!
