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.

Pray for no fever, aches, pains

Ryan started feeling bad yesterday at school around lunchtime. Seems to be his usual time. He went and hung out at my parent's and they pushed the fluids. He only had a 99.6 fever with some aches and pains. We kept him pretty cool and watched him all night. He has a cough, but no fever, fewer aches and pains. He is going to hang out at the farm again today, but he hates to miss his play this morning. He made it yesterday and Les and I went to watch. He had the part of a spirit in "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes" and was quite the ham when he blew kisses to the crowd when they came back out for applause. We are hoping to avoid a trip to SR, but will have to head down there if his fever spikes 101. Please say a prayer that this is short-lived and he feels better soon. Thanks for checking in. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
