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 are so glad he's home!

We had a wonderful weekend. It was so great to get Ryan back home. We had some friends over Saturday night for a campfire and smores-and a few fireworks. It was a blast-literally. We had intended on going to the waterslides at Lake Lanier on Sunday, but stayed home after seeing the weatherman forecast rain-which didn't come until late, but when it finally got here, we got a good downpour. We pushed those plans off until Thursday. We got a call today from Dr. Reissner's office and have an appt. tomorrow at 10:30. We will stop by the clinic beforehand to get labs and see where Ryan's platelets are. We'll post when we know something. Still no word on his marrows. Thanks for checking in. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
