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.

Thank you all, Prayers Answered!

Thanks to everyone for praying for Ryan. His counts had made a nice jump. Platelets were 56k, Hemo.- 8.8, and ANC- 990. We thought we were going to avoid the aspirates, but after they had emailed the results to Dr. Kramer in NY, she emailed back asking them to proceed with the aspirates. Bummer! Les said Ryan seemed pretty loopy coming out of the anesthesia. We will be waiting to hear how soon we can go to NY. thanks again! Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
