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.

No, He's not drinking beer...

It's just root beer! Can you see how much hair he has though? He looks awesome. I wish he felt that way. He started complaining of pain in his rib last night which turned into both sides this morning. He is worried his cancer is coming back. He has a regular appt. with Dr. George tomorrow afternoon. Please, please say many prayers that his cancer isn't back. We will ask that his catecholomines be checked, but won't get any answers until the end of the week. They will probably schedule scans for next Tuesday and Wednesday. He is playing and Tylenol is working for the most part. I know he is worried and I hate that. I hate all of it. Why can't they find a cure? Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
