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.

Inching Up

We got an email this afternoon that Ryan's platelets have gone from 20k to 35k. That is an awesome jump, but I can't understand why his white count and his hemoglobin have gone down again. The plan is to check them again next week. If he feels bad, we can go get him some blood, but right now he doesn't want to.
Our friend, Rob, of Night of Screams called today and invited us to an open-house/start of season party on Sunday. We can't wait to see their newest scare. Ryan is ready to scare people! Thanks for checking in and thanks for your prayers and kind messages. We love yall! Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
