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.

CT clear

Ryan was quite a mess by the time we made it down to Scottish. There was blood all through his hair and face. His shirt was soaked. All of that from a tiny cut taking two stitches to close. The best news was that the CT scan was clear for any bleeding on his brain. We will be getting platelets first then a couple units of blood as he was down in the 4's for hemoglobin.
We are certainly hoping that this will not become a standard reaction to this treatment. We are hoping to be out tomorrow. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan

Guest Book:
Seizures are scary and head cuts to bleed a lot, so I can understand your entry being all over the place. Fortunately, both of those things can be quite temporary.

I hope for strength and love around you all.
