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.

Happy 10th Birthday, Ryan!

This was the scene at our house last Thursday night. A very scary scene! Ryan wanted to do a haunted trail at our house like we used to do for Halloween, and with the help of Rob Langston we were able to make that happen. Rob has a spook house in Athens across from Ga. Square Mall. He brought out all kinds of goblins, lights, masks, and even some of his friends, and his dad to make it all terrific for Ryan. They even made him an official member of their staff. Ryan is hoping to go this Halloween and volunteer at the spook house and scare people. I think that is his favorite part. Thank you to so many of our friends who were able to come out. We had a great time and we thank you for making it such a memorable night.

Guest Book:
Wow! It looks like you have been having a great time! Happy birthday Ryan! Keep up the good work and good luck with radiation!
