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.

About 3pm today Ryan was sleeping and woke up with a 103 fever. We shot back down to Scottish. Ryan hates having to check in through emergency. It takes soooo long. We ordered Chinese (all his favorites) and had a good dinner in an ER room. About 9:30pm we made it to the new Aflac floor, wow! it's very impressive. The rooms are double the size of the 3rd floor, flat screens, PS3's, accurate heating controls, soft parent's bed! recessed un-intrusive lighting, desk. It is so nice. I'm telling you all this as Missy sits in emergency in Athens (about 60 miles away) with her friend Karen. She is having severe abdominal pain. It's about 10:30pm right now. She will call with news as she gets it. It would be nice to be in two places :( Love Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
