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.

The boys are slowly getting better.

Here are couple of shots Dawn sent me from Friday night's St. Baldrick events. Thank you, Derek. He was able to meet his goal and even went over a little bit. I think Dawn said he went over $2700! It's the passion and efforts of people like Derek, and those of you who sent in money, that will help us find a cure. Ryan is feeling better. He had a script for Zofran in the computer at Publix. Will is feeling better, too. He went to school one day last week, but his feet were so swollen when he got home, we had to make him stay home the rest of the week. Hopefully, he'll be back tomorrow. He hasn't thrown up in several days. Les and Ryan went out early yesterday and picked him up some golf clubs. Unfortunately, the rain is going to keep them from hitting some balls today. We have to get counts checked locally either tomorrow or Tuesday. Thanks for your prayers for us. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
