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.

Busy Boys!

This was the scene at our house this morning. Les and Rick assembled Ryan's new fort. He didn't feel much like playing in it. Maybe later this week. We've done three days of chemo and have 2 to go. He was nauseated today and his gums were bleeding. He slept a good bit, too. I think that was from the phenergan. Will took a big turn today, thank Goodness! He went over to my mom and dad's today and ate some noodles. When he came home, he wanted a club sandwich. He ate almost the whole thing and never got sick. He actually hasn't gotten sick at all today or yesterday. We're gonna keep him home from school tomorrow just to give him another day of rest. Well, I'm off to bed. Thanks for checking in on us. Please keep Ryan in your prayers that he handles the chemo well and that it is doing its job. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
