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 better; Will, not so much

Temodar down, and irinotecan running. I'm trying to stay awake another 40 minutes to flush his line. He's very worried he's going to be sick. He was much better today. Great, in fact! The pain patch is working great. There hasn't been much change in Will. He woke up getting sick this morning. I gave him one of his Zofrans and he took a nap, but woke up still being sick. I'm not sure why it didn't work so well today. We're just working on keeping him hydrated. We're really hoping Will is gonna turn a corner here in a day or two. Tomorrow is day 8. Thanks for checking in on us and thanks for your prayers for us. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi,Will, and SuperRyan
