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.

Answered Prayers

Just got a call from Les and he said the scan looked good. The only light-up he saw was the usual liver. Tomorrow morning we will (hopefully) find out just what that is. They will biopsy 3-6 spots and then we will know if Ryan still has cancer or not. Of course, that is unless there is something Les can't see. The radiologists go over that much closer than just the naked eye. We are celebrating tonight by going to see the lights at Lake Lanier. Thank you all for your prayers for Ryan. God answered two prayers for me today. My Dad got a good report from his doctor, too! I finished my chemo on Sunday night and feel better everyday. I am hoping to schedule my surgery tomorrow when I see the plastic surgeon. We will update again when we get results from Ryan's biopsy. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
