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.

Bam !

Ryan made an amazing turn a round. After his initial 103 fever went down, it never came back. I have to say that our nurses on the second floor were wonderful. I think Erica had called over and given them the heads up that there was a couple of ornery guys coming to stay! So it was a record, one night in the hospital. Nanny and granddaddy stayed with Ryan while I went into work for a while today. Smith popped in for a visit and so did Kelly. I did take a quick tour of the new Aflac floor. The rooms are very large and beautifully finished. They come complete with flat screen TV's and Playstations! I'd love to never have to stay there!!! Ryan's picture hangs perfectly in the hall, his quote on the bottom reads " I'm happiest when I'm with my family"... I am happiest when we're all at home...
Love Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
