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.

A Couple of Quacks!

This was yesterday on our "Duck Tour" in Philadelphia. We decided we needed a change of pace-something relatively slower. The boat/truck, actually cruised around the Delaware river! It was a nice day with a relaxing double decker tour around the city also, we didn't get see too much up close though. Ryan is not into a lot of walking and time was short. We are off to meet Les' cousin, Christina, in Greenwich Village. We're going to walk around Soho, too. Heidi has a soccer game this morning. I wish I had booked their flight earlier in the day, but at least, they will have plenty of time to get their stuff together and get to the airport. We will be so glad to put our arms around them and see their smiles. Have an awesome day! Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
