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.

Was Santa ever good to us!!

Oh My! Santa was so good to all of us! Ryan had such a hard time going to sleep last night. He was so excited. I finally had to lie down with him so he would drift off. I did, too! He was the first one up at our house, of course! He was so excited to see what Santa had brought him. He never even mentioned the miniature horse! He was so busy unwrapping and plugging batteries into things. Thank you to all the Christmas angels that worked so hard to make this a special day for us. We are enjoying our day together. We knotted a special blanket together last night. I've got pictures to post, but can't due to tech. probs. I'll try again later. Merry Christmas, everyone! Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
