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.

Surprise !

SpyGear found out, somehow,
just how much Ryan loves their stuff. Kim Bratcher from SpyGear in California, contacted us and was so unbelievably nice to send out some of their hottest items. Ryan was ear to ear hooking it up. Last night he had the video car in the den, watching TV after he went to bed. (gonna have to keep an eye on that thing!)

We hung out at the pool most of the weekend. Just can't image he had brain surgery such a short time ago.

Will was keeping us entertained with his tricks off the "slide". They hardly ever just slide down it anymore.
This week holds daily radiation, no chemo. It should be very smooth so long as the traffic co-operates. It generally takes 1 1/2 hours to get down to Emory.
We hope your weekend was as fun as ours! Lots of love to all our friends out there, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan.
