- 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.

The age old question...WHY ?
It will be a day that will live in our children's memory forever. It is up to us to help make it uplifting for them and proud.
In lieu of flowers, we will be taking donations for Missy's and Ryan's dear charities, CURE and The Lighthouse.
In God We Trust, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan

Missy has gotten so much worse since Friday. She can no longer stand and is confused the majority of the time. Occasionally she is cognitive and that brings a much needed smile to me. Thank goodness my mom is still here. She has extended her return home by a couple more weeks. With both of them this ill, you can't leave either alone hardly for a minute.
Their new Doctor is coming out today with their nurse. We need to revise the plan and have a nurse here all during the day. With prayers, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
