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.

One out of the Hospital, one in....

Missy spent last night in the hospital after having some blood work done and realizing her hemo was extremely low. They are finishing up her 3 units of blood and she should be checking out later this afternoon. She needs an energy boost as I will be in Columbus Ga with Will at the state soccer tournament Saturday and Sunday. Tonight we are headed to our county's Relay For Life event. Ryan is not selling Lemonade this year but he will be spending some cold hard cash with Heidi and Will ! They always have a good time with all their friends at Relay.
We had Ryan's weekly check-up at Scottish this morning. He is doing very well. Stephanie hooked him up with a "to-go" care package of a 5/8" x 22 port needle, Ryan's "special" port dressing, and hot packs, so when I convince him he has to go back to Vermont, we'll be ready! Thanks Steph! He was sure happy to see Dr. George also. Here's praying for an uneventful weekend (except for our team winning state!) Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
