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.

Foxworthy, not joking around...

One of Ryan's many friends, Jeff Foxworthy steps up for all children who are battling childhood cancer. Just click on his link and scroll down through the various videos.
We are also incredibly saddened by the relapse of another good friend. Patrick's family is interviewed in the link above also. We are wishing Patrick a speedy recovery and back into remission as quickly as possible.
Thank you to Kristin Connor and her staff at CURE, who keep leading the way and funding the research that is keeping hope alive for the children fighting this brutal disease.
Sincerely, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
