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 is our hero

Doctor George told us the news this morning that Ryan is out of treatment options. The bone scan shows the disease has progressed throughout his body and that his poor counts cannot recover from any type of chemotherapy required to simply battle it. He is in severe pain as the time wears off on his medicine. We are spending the night here again to get blood and platelets. The extra time will also help with the transition from iv pain killers to oral. Please pray that we have the ability to make Ryan as comfortable as possible. That he can have fun with his friends and family and we have half his strength and fortitude to walk bravely beside him. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
