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.

1st update from Vermont

Ryan should be waking up from his bone marrow aspirates now. They are done for the day. He got platelets this morning and had an MIBG - CT combination scan around noon. Today should be their hardest day. Tomorrow he should start the Nirfurtimox. I think it's a pill 3x a day. They have to take a cab from the Ronald McDonald house and have to wait a while for it to pick them up. It's kind of a pain. Ryan loved hailing cabs in NY. Please pray tonight for Ryan to eat and drink more and for him to have an easier time T-Teeing. The narcotics will definitely slow you down. That has been something of a challenge today. And please pray for Les' strength. I know this is very wearing on him. I talked to him just a bit ago and he hadn't eaten anything all day. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan

Guest Book:
