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.

Back in NY

We arrived at Sloan last night with out a problem. Ryan an I were getting a little dinner at the airport and were going to get some snackers for the fight. I told Ryan "let's swing by the gate right quick and see whats going on", well, there was no one at the gate, all had boarded! oops! made our flight though.
The team here in NY gets a little perturbed when we show up at 7pm instead of 1pm, buts that's the way rock stars do it. I just can't see why they want us up here so early?
Missy had a rough night last night mainly due to the heavy drugs. Karen said she was saying some pretty funny things and cussed out a nurse. I don't think she will remember any of it. They only did the two biopsies yesterday, the port placement is happening right now. Once her loopyness wears off, she will be able to go home and rest, hopefully comfortably.
Missy needs your prayers more than ever right now. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
