- Hans Weberling
- 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.

Hans and Kevin not posing for me tonight!
Hans tonight watching his movie...
Discoloration and swelling at the sight of pain in upper right arm. While there are still a couple of possibilities, one possibility is a second recurrence of NB. Next, we will do an MIBG scan. if we have any luck, they will squeeze us in tomorrow. If not, we will wait have to wait until next week. Staying put at the hospital for now to control pain. Hans' pain seems like it is beginning to limit his range of motion - he's eating and drinking primarily with his left hand now.
If MIBG is positive, it means NB is back and we will treat as quickly and intelligently as possible, in consultation with CHOP. If MIBG is negative, then we will do a biopsy of the bone and go from there.
That's the scoop. We are watching the new Transformers movie, conveniently, it came out today on DVD.
