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.

I love posting good news. We heard from Erika this morning and Ryan's catecholomines are in the normal range!! An answer to so many prayers. Thank you all so much for lifting us up in prayer. Ryan is off to Matt's house to spend the night and get in some good play time with his buddy. We are off to Heidi's soccer match shortly. They are in the final game of the tournament at 8:00 tonight. I'm afraid I may freeze my hiney off, but I will be loving it just being able to be there and watch her play. She finally got her learner's permit this week. It took us awhile to get together all the paperwork necessary. She was pretty proud to show off her card. I am not too ready for her to get behind the wheel, though. Will has a game tomorrow. I am crossing my fingers for some sunshine. Hope you all have an incredible weekend with your families and friends. We are going to! Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
