About Me

Bakersfield, CA, United States
Hans was a busy, happy, sweet and fearless three year old when he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. He fought his disease like a "gladiator" for nearly 6 years. Hans was an animal lover to his core. He was 'guarded' at home by his three cats, Black, Orange and Cotton. He also had his Golden Retriever, Honey, to keep him company. Hans enjoyed swimming, biking, gardening, grilling (he had his very own grill!), horseback riding, playing video games, building Legos, and flipping between Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Animal Planet. Hans loved all members of his family and he was a loyal friend. He had to go through a lot of treatment in his life. But Hans powered through it. His attitude was let's get this done! His motivation was always to get back home, to his family, pets, favorite foods and pool.

Little Update


I'm up sort of late for me, baking! But I wanted to post a little.

Hans is doing well so far with week three. He's getting to know some of the kids in his class and telling us some funny stories about making friends at school. It's different having a boy in school now; you don't get quite the same level of detail as with a girl. But, I'll take any news I can get.

I have a ton of friends baking tonight and tomorrow for Friday's bake sale. Thank you! I hope we do well... after all, September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month!

Elle did great in her second tournament of the year. The girls had one win, one tie and one loss... and they moved onto the quarter finals...where they lost. But I think it was a good show. We had two more girls go off the field during training last night with potential injuries! Yikes! I hope that's it for the year. Our girls are sort of dropping like flies! The main thing we have to get the hang of now is time management around our new fifth grade home work requirements and all this soccer. But, we'll get it down.

Kevin has had his work cut out for him around here with his little helper - Hans. They have rebuilt part of the deck - got our poor battered hot tub back into working order, and he's building a path around the side of the house. Hans LOVES all the action - but I think he is a little tired of going with his dad up to the "board store" (home depot)...

That's it for now. I'll report later with news of Friday's big sale.

Thanks for those of you who are baking, and to all who are scanning this week, and next week, and the following week, we're praying for each of your little beauties:)
