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.

Ready for the weekend !

Ryan woke up in a good mood this morning. We changed it up and gave him his new chemo at night. We needed to start treatment asap. I waited till he was asleep to start but as soon as I touched his line, his eyes popped open. He is sooo agreeable and does what we need him to do without a single objection. It's truly amazing.
Will is not any better. Even with strong anti nausea medicine, he is still getting sick several times a day. I am giving it until Monday then taking him to Scottish Rite if there is no significant improvement. It is all a little overwhelming at times. Just trying to keep it all going as normal as possible and keep praying hard for our 3 fighters ! Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
