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.

Missy's mom and dad took Ryan down to Scottish today for his MIBG injection. Scan will be first thing in the morning. It wasn't too long ago that we would stress like crazy during this time. Now tomorrow is just another scan and the stress has moved to chemo at Emory for Missy. Everyday is stressful. She is doing so well compared to last week. It gives you that feeling like, "are you mess'in with me"? So even though we are on our way to image a know spot on Ryan's leg, and praying it has not spread, Missy's urgent situation is just so much greater. So we are praying for smooth sailing tomorrow and just no bad news.
Off to the left, under "Links", Missy now has her own page. It has sure taken off with the number of visitors, now if we could just get it updated!! Thank you for holding this family in your thoughts and prayers. Love Les, Missy, Hedi, Will and SuperRyan
