- 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.

Lauren's Run is this Sunday
Thank you to all the supporters of Team SuperRyan for this Sunday's annual Lauren's Run event. This audio below is Missy and Ryan's interview with WSB radio...It breaks my heart. Cancer is a horrible struggle.Missy would stay so positive in the midst of having all the odds stacked against her. She was deeply involved in raising money and awareness for childhood cancer research. Even through her own agonizing treatments, it was still about the children of all our fellow fighters.
Her wish was for us all to live a happy, healthy and productive life. To remember her, and keep fighting for the CURE. This, we can do.
