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.

We got in around 11 and settled into our new digs. We will be here until Friday when we check into Allen Fletcher through Monday. We our on our way to get his check up and an MIBG injection (damn, forgot his SSKI) We are hoping to tour the lake this afternoon on a sail boat. Ryan, " dad, can you even drive a sail boat" dad, "of course I can, how hard can it be" This should be fun if we can get the time to get it done !

We're feelin the love, Les Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
