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.

Mackie, come home

We are moving slowly, but things are looking up. Ryan and I are both feeling better today. It was very nice to have a day off of school. We should both be back tomorrow. Ryan has a check-up tomorrow with Dr. George. We didn't start his chemo today, but will see what they say tomorrow. The only thing that hasn't turned around from the weekend is Mackie's disappearance. He disappeared in a flurry of activity on Thursday and we haven't seen him since. He has on a collar with our number so someone should call if they find him. We are going to make some fliers and put around. Hopefully, he will turn up. That is all for now. Just a quick update! Thanks for checking in on us. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
