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.

MRI tomorrow.

Tomorrow are Ryan's brain and spine MRIs. Please say prayers that they continue to be clear. and, please pray that Ryan will have an easy time of it. We're gonna rent a movie to hopefully keep him focused on something other than the banging and clanging of the MRI. He had a good weekend. Les took the kids and Ryan's buddys Matt and Rick to the Gladiators game. They swung by Hooters to see the new magazine with Ryan's pics in it. They brought home several copies. Ryan was his usual celebrity self at Hooters. Some of the same girls that were at his party were there and came by to sign his book and say hey. He was pretty happy about that. Yesterday we all had dentist appts. We all got good check-ups except Ryan's gums seem inflamed. I'm sure that's the Accutane. He's only got tonight and tomorrow morning doses left! Thanks for your many prayers for Ryan and all of us. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
