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.

WSB750 Care-a-thon

WSB's annual Aflac Cancer Center Care-a-thon is under way. Ryan has participated in this, among others, fundraiser over the years. His friend Kenneth and mom Anastasia have remembered Ryan on the WSB site. Thank you Anastasia for that :) Click on Kenneth M at the bottom of the WSB link to read Kenneth's heartbreaking story. We wish them great days, no pain and many smiles. Cancer is a terrible horrible thing...

Guest Book:
Was listening to WSB on the way home today and of course thought so much about ya'll-- wishing Ryan & Missy were still here to participate this year. So glad to see your sweet kids on the site when I checked for updates! Stay strong, and keep smiling!
