- Name: Ryan
- Location: Athens, Ga, United States
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.

Looking for good things.
Ryan filled up his quarter book yesterday. He was pretty happy about that. Can you tell? I think he loved being FINISHED ! The other picture is of my tulips Les bought me. Aren't they beautiful? I love bright yellow tulips. They've done their fare share of perking things up around here! I'm hoping tomorrow is a better day. I've been sick every day and haven't been able to keep anything down. I've been trying different pain meds and nausea meds, but haven't had much luck yet. Maybe tomorrow?? Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
