- 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.

My heart is so heavy for you & your kids. I just want you to know that nobody should have to go through this, and you may feel totally inadequate, but if anyone can do this, you can. You are naturally so loving and caring with your kids, and you have great relationships with them. Please know that our whole family will be praying for you forever.

Our hearts are hurting, but can’t imagine the depths of your grief. Missy and Ryan were such courageous fighters. I can’t see myself continuing to go to work with the care for others the way she did with her struggles.
Les, thank you, for never giving up on your family and being a steadfast example to them and us.
We’ve been praying for your family for a long time and will continue to do so. May God bless you and comfort you. We are so glad they are no longer suffering.
