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 New Record

You are not going to believe it but Ryan and I flew home today. NO treatment required ! We spent a short 20 hours in NY because Dr. Kramer said Ryan was her first patient to acquire the max. radiation/3f8 dosage after just one test round and one treatment. So that means we are finished traveling to NY for a while. We were two happy campers. The real benefit was we were able to come home early and be with Missy. She is still at Emory. We have a couple of markers to hit before she will be released. Please pray for the strength that Missy needs to get her home safely. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and record setting SuperRyan
