- Name: Ryan
- Location: Athens, Ga, United States
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.

He did take time out of his busy schedule today to hand out gifts of appreciation to large contributors of "The Lighthouse" at a golf benefit at the Saint Ives Country Club with founder and a good friend of his, Melinda. Keep praying for his strength to endure.

Take care and we are thinking of you all!
Sounds like radiation is about over. I hope all the insurance stuff got worked out and you can move on to NY. A little boy from MN may be in NY the same time as you. If so I will give you his web site. Please call me anytime if you want to ask questions about anything. Prayers and positive thoughts to you all.
Love, Team brAvery
