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.

Loving life at home.

Ryan and Les made it home yesterday around 5ish. He was able to get his blood and platelets and take care of the planned office visit from the comfort of the Aflac floor. He got a couple of stitches to close up his forehead. He said this morning he got the best night's sleep last night in his own bed. Thanks to Smith and Julie for coming down to the hospital and then coming out to the house and making our dinner. We're looking forward to another visit at the lake tomorrow. We had Ryan's favorite- a bonfire, last night. Thanks to the Vickery's, the Stapleton's, and Karen and Jackson for coming out to hang around the old campfire. It was like old times, almost. Thanks to so many for your prayers for the guys, too. Ryan is feeling so much better! Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
