- 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.

The right medicine
Missy has gone to Emory with her friend Karen for Chemo so we likely won't see her until this afternoon. She spoke with Heidi and Will last night but we won't be discussing this with Ryan. He is too stressed and his mood needs to get back to his normal, lighthearted and carefree, funny self. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers that been lifting us up. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
Ryan, you hang in there buddy. I'll never stop praying for your miracle. I'm praying for your strength AND strength for all of the Morgans.
Always in my thoughts...
You are all in my prayers. I have been following Ryan's story and was shocked to hear that there were NO more treatments available to him. Ryan, I am thinking of you and praying for you everyday. I hope you don't have to experience any more pain.
Keeping you in my prayers,
I guess the answer to that is that you carry it with the help of the hundreds of friends who pray for you and care for you. You carry it with the help of a load-carrying God.
My heart is with you all today.
