It is an extremely rare form of pediatric cancer affecting roughly only ten kids each year in the US.  I have been writing about our journey on facebook since November 2010 under a group named RYAN's HOPE.  I am also in the process of transferring all of the group's facebook posts to his new CaringBridge page.
