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.

We just want a calm, but fun weekend!

We were back down in the ER this morning. Ryan had bounded into our bed around 7 and was fine until about 8. After sneezing 3x he immediately had severe pain. I have never seen him in such pain. He was telling us to call 911 that his head was going to explode. We waited it out for about 15 or 20 minutes and put a call into Dr. Reissner's office and headed to SR. He calmed down in the car and fell asleep. By the time we got to the ER, he was ok and playing and laughing again. A CT showed no changes, so we headed back home. We are alternating Tylenol and Motrin through the weekend just as preventative. Please pray this will work and we won't have any more excitement. Ryan isn't too excited about laying around being calm. "Great! Just throw me in the fun box!" Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
