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 Long Day

Night has finally come and things have finally slowed down. Our flight today was delayed three hours for bad weather in NY. It is soooo cold here, and was raining when we had to find our way to Sloan. He has finally eaten something (he complained the pound cake just wasn't like his Nanny's) and will be getting platelets soon. He will be getting the usual pre-meds this time to avoid those nasty hives. I will post again tomorrow after the injection. Please pray that he has a great sleep tonight (me, too) and the injection goes smoothly tomorrow with no pain or nausea, or fever, either. Thanks so much for checking in on us. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
