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.

Staying positive

Missy checked into Emory on Sunday. Her cough and head pain has not given her a break for weeks now. Today, she will be having a series of tests to hopefully give us a clear picture on a direction to get her back to feeling 100%. If the schedule holds up, she should be home tonight, but results not for a few days. Ryan and I head back to NY for the last time this year. He will get the final two rounds in January. He has an MIBG scan scheduled for next Thursday to see what's changed in his leg since his last scan. During the break from NY, he will likely have to under go more radiation and chemo.
I know I don't need to say how very worry some the next two weeks are for Missy and I, but we could sure use an extra pray and a positive thought or two, to make it though. We thank you for that, love always, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
