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.

Ya'll Are Never Gonna Believe This!

Dr. Reissner came in this morning and said we could go home!! Ryan said he knew it all the time! He has done so great. He ate some waffles, sausage, and a sugar biscuit last night after everyone left. Then at 10:30, Les went over to McDonalds and got him 6 chicken nuggets that he ate. We are home and cleaned up. It was a very long night. The kids and grandparents don't know that we are out, and we are going to surprise them at the swim meet. This is the state qualifying meet, and the kids have worked so hard. It will be a great surprise. Don't get me wrong, Ryan is not 100%, but he will be there soon. Love ya'll!
