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.

Quiet Heroes

Jill Becker and 11Alive News will airing a tribute to Quiet Heroes starting Monday morning at 6:45am. Jill's son Matt was a good friend and a camp counsellor of Ryan's. Matt was one of the reasons Ryan looked forward to summer camp so much. If you can't tune in, I'm sure it will be on their web site at
The luncheon is happening Sept. 19th. This is one of the largest fundraisers for Cure of the year. From everything Missy used to tell me about going in the past, it's a good time with lots of cool and unique items to bid on. Bring your check book and I'll see you there !
I'm looking forward to a "birthday lunch" this Monday with some good friends . I'm thinkin it's going to be fun ! :)
Les, Heidi and Will
