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.

Ryan's night at the Rik'z

Ryan had a busy, fun weekend while we were at the Ritz. He spent Friday night at Rick and Barre's, and they took him to Will's basketball game on Saturday. Will had a great game and his team won. They shot their air-soft guns (I think Rick was the target!) for a while and then headed to the farm. Ryan's buddy Max came and spent the night with them. Poor Max was sick when I got to the farm early this afternoon to pick up the boys. I should have called to check on him, but I haven't really slowed down. Hopefully, it is something short-lived and hopefully, Ryan won't get it. He is complaining of pain in his arm, and I know he is worried about it. He got some Tylenol before bed. Please pray that it is better tomorrow and only due to over exertion this weekend. Thanks for checking in on Ryan. Please pray for him and all our little friends fighting. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
