- Name: Ryan
- Location: Athens, Ga, United States
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.

Half way through
He has been having vision problems over the last 3 weeks and I had kinda forgotten about it until Dr. Sholler asked today. He claimed he had none. Later today I asked again if he was still seeing double at about a 15' distance and he said yes. He just doesn't want any additional treatment so he says he was going to deny it. He also said he wished he could be hooked up to anesthesia permanently so he couldn't feel pain or worry, then quickly added I'd be hooked up to and we could still talk and do fun stuff...I told him he just described Heaven...Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
