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.

Brrr! We are freezing our hineys off. Not Ryan, though, cause he's half-Canadian! Ryan is doing good. I wish he were at school, though. He is so far behind. He has a teacher that comes out twice a week, but there is just so much to cover. Until his ANC comes up he's just gonna have to be behind. I don't need him or me sick. I say that as I'm thinking about going back to work! We met Dad yesterday after work for a movie. "Bedtime Stories" was my kind of movie! No guns, no half-naked girls, no bad language. A great family flick! I definitely recommend it. We're planning on taking in a Gladiators game this weekend to benefit CURE. Will and Ryan love that! Have an awesome weekend. Stay warm. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
