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.

Hard chemo :(

It has been "nice" the last year for Ryan having only to be on maintenance chemo. He has just his second round of temodar and iranotecan. The vomiting has begun and he is very weak. I'm not sure how he is going to make it through the next three days of this stuff. It brings back memories of his original chemo treatment in 04. He already looks like he is losing weight. He will be doing 5 days on then 20 days off. He will need every one of those to recuperate. We hope to find out when Ryan can start radiation sometime next week and get that on the schedule as well. Maybe we can get Ryan's and Missy's radiation on the same days! That would likely be a first! Please send healing thoughts to Ryan, he can sure use them right now. Love Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
