- 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.

19 years !!
We had a good long weekend. Jimmy and Frankie flew back Vegas Saturday morning after a week long visit. We got a lot of yard work done. We were invited to Smith's families lake house for an awesome day on the lake, a great fish fry with some great friends !! We are scheduled to go back to Vermont on the 16th, for 10 days (oh no) we are going to take Will along to help keep Ryan from going crazy. Ryan still insists that he is not goings and hopes that Will and I have a good time. This week we are praying for a major reduction in both of their pain, please help us out with that. Lot's of love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
