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.

Did we scare you? We scared a lot of people Saturday night at the Night of Screams haunted house. You'll just have to imagine how scarey Will and Mom were! and, yes, they had make-up, too! Thank you, Rob, and all the other spooks! We had a great time, but sure were tired today. Speaking of being tired, Ryan has been sleeping a lot this past week, and we're told that could continue for another week. It is a common side effect from his radiation. We were told it could happen 4 to 6 weeks after radiation. It figures Ryan would stretch that out to 7! We've got a busy week ahead getting ready for NY. Between Ryan and mom, we've got 4 trips to Atlanta to see the doc. Thanks for checking in on us, and thanks for your many prayers. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
