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.

Relax it's only cancer

It was a smooth, efficient day at Scottish today. About an hour and 3/4's to finish up. The spot on his knee did not look to have increased in size from the last scan and for that I am very thankful. There was a smaller spot on his shoulder also. I took the opportunity to tell Ryan there was a little something on his knee. He immediately looked me straight in the eye, worried, and asked if it was DIC, I said "no, it's just a little cancer" he said "whew" . Amazing. We then swung by the neurosurgeons office and agreed on 2 more weeks of Keppra at half dose and then he is finished with that medicine after 7 months, Yeah!!
I am expecting some low dose chemo and radiation to take care of this two spots and move on from there. Thank you as always for keeping such a caring eye on our Ryan. Sincerely, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
