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.

Perfect Sailing Weather !

Ryan has done a wonderful job today with his team here in Vermont. I think we are breaking him ! Well Dr. Sholler is. He got his blood work done, which didn't look too bad, overall check up, and his nuke med injection. First thing tomorrow he drinks contrast for his combined CT and MIBG scan then on to his bone and marrow aspirates.

Our day ended with a 30' sailboat cruise on Lake Champlain. The wind was good and the weather was warm. Good thing to cause I left Atlanta without a jacket. My friend Smith said I might be able to find one at Burlington?? We had a great time with our new friend Captain Gideon ! Ryan did most of the sailing. There were a lot of sailboats out tonight enjoying the perfect conditions. Hopefully thing will go as smooth tomorrow as they did today. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
