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.

"Can't we take the chopper?"

Yesterday was a much better day. Ryan had a great visit with Heidi and Will and then he played with his buddy, Dominic, for several hours. They ran around and played like normal. It was so great to watch. He got platelets this morning just to keep the level up nice and high. We had a pretty cool ride over in the CHOA ambulance (10:30 am) and Ryan is still in the Gamma Knife room. He only understands that it is regular radiation-the kind that was so star wars like before. We are not able to update from SR. We can't even pull his website up on the computer. Thanks for your prayers. Keep sending them up, we can really use them right now. We are hoping to hear something soon. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan

It's 2:30 and word is "planning" is just about over. The procedure can take 1-2 hours then an hour in post op. We hope to be back to Scottish by 6pm.
