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.

A wing and a prayer

We've got a week of Accutane down. His sweet little face is peeling and his lips are dry and cracked. Another whole week to go! We got an email from our friend, Tonya. Pictures of Ryan's birthday party at Hooters is in the new magazine available at any Hooters. We'll be checking that out soon. Be sure and get your copy so Ryan can autograph it! It is sure to become a collectors edition !! Next week Ryan will have a couple of MRI's to close out the study in New York. We are hoping that these will also suffice if we get accepted in the St. Jude, Memphis antibody study. See ya at Hootsky's !
Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
