About Me

My photo
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.

In Action

Hi Guys,
Just a quick post to say that Elle rocked the talent show. It was so fun. I had some butterflies, but I don't think she did. She was one of twenty of the 600 kids at Wilkerson who "found a nerve", as the teacher MC said. She was one of two kids to rap, one of two kids to go without musical accompaniment. She had some moves. She got rousing applause. We had fun! I was also proud of my troop too! Our girls (ten total at the school) were totally overrepresented in the talent show - with 4 entries. It was cool! So I'm a proud mom and a proud former troop leader.

I hear E did well in her game with a good turn in goal as well as in the field. I hear she let no balls by on her watch and did 4 blocks, one being truly impressive! Thanks to the team manager, Shawn, who forwarded me this photo. I've been having tech. difficulties with my camera lately and haven't had much to post. Gotta get on that. Sorry.

I had a good day at the conference. All these Docs were nice enough to spend their Saturday with the parents. Athena and all the volunteers did a fabulous job! Pat with the CNCF is the best. Vickie is taking the lanyard thing through the roof! Check out this link if you want to see the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, talk about both my friend Erin B, and lanyards! Forward to min 26:30

In Hans news... no new complaints of pain. He seems to be bearing weight on that arm and everything. This is good.
