- Name: Ryan
- Location: Athens, Ga, United States
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.

Good News and very, very sad news.
Shortly after that, I got an email from Les. He is in TX on business and got a call from his mom that our nephew, Jerry, had a heart attack and passed away in the early hours this morning. Please pray for his wife and his little 4 and 6 year old boys. Jerry was only 28 and in the midst of, what I'm sure were, the best days of his life. I wish that Les and I were able to go up and be with the family, but with Ryan's scan on Thursday and our trip to NY on Monday, it seems crazy to even consider it. Please pray for all the Morgan family and the McGinnis'. The next week is going to be so difficult. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
