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.

What a great team at Athens Regional!

This is a great group of women who have really made Ryan's 2 weeks of radiation fun and something to look forward to. Thank ya'll so much for making him feel so comfortable and at ease. The other picture is him digging into his stocking they made for him
which is full of toys and candy. He has 2 more days to go, and hasn't slowed down a bit. His lips are pretty dried out from the Accutane. I tried to get a picture of Heidi's Powder-Puff football game tonight, but I was just too far away. It misted rain on and off the whole game, and I was very glad for the game to be finished, even if her team didn't win! Thanks for checking in on Ryan and all of us. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
