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.

Not a good scan

Ryan's scan on last week has shown uptake in his right leg. This will mean that during our break from treatment in NY, Ryan will undergo more radiation and if possible, chemo here in Atlanta. I just can't imagine what goes through his little head with this never ending treatment...
We did have a great time as usual at Camp Sunshine this weekend. It is just soooo hectic it hard to think straight. Worrying that everything is done and up to date, that Heidi and Will are OK, that they are going to have a smooth trip to NY next weekend to meet us.
I have to thank all the friends of ours and Ryan's who have helped us out. Everything is so very much appreciated.
Well, we are finished packing and will be flying to NY in the morning. Thank you again, Les Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
