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.

Productive/fun weekend

It was a gorgeous weekend in Atlanta. We managed to get all of our fall yard work wrapped up. Tons of leaves removed, grass cut, pool closed for the winter, garage and dog kennel neat and tidy and three soccer games. Heidi had taken the ACT test two Saturdays ago and took the SAT test this Saturday. 5 hours Ugh ! She was pretty confident she had done well on both.
Kristen called with extra tickets for Sunday nights Thrashers/Blues game so the kids and I met Jean and Steve's family, Kristen and Mike's family to watch Atlanta kick St. Louis's butt !!!! Thank you Kristen :) We all had so much fun !
I have been trying to figure out what to do that will be fun for the dinner that was lucky to be the high bidder on with "super pitcher" Tom Glavine and his family. I have a couple ideas in the works that will hopefully turn the whole thing into a big party, that would be awesome :) Keep your fingers crossed !
Les, Heidi and Will
