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.

Call for Bakers and Volunteers!

Hi -
You've heard me talk about our Texas-Sized bake sales...Well, I wanted to invite everyone out there who wants to get involved in helping raise some $$$ for a cure the old fashioned way - by baking! Love to bake, but don't want to have all those temptations in the house??? I've got the sale for you! Want to roll up your sleeves and come spend a day at Texas Children's Hospital selling for a cure? Let me know!

Friday, December 4th, 2009 Texas Children's Hospital 10 am - 3pm.

What if you're not in the Houston Area? How about just doing a micro-bake sale??? Whip something up and leave it out in the Staff Lounge or Breakroom with a little donation box. Send in the proceeds to:
Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation
39651 Treasury Center
Chicago, IL 60694-9600

All baked good donations are appreciated! Thank you. Shoot me an email at:

Thanks, Lara

PS - in other news, Hans just finished Round 12 of his ABT751, thank goodness! We are always pleased to get past Day 7. He is doing pretty well. We have a crazy weekend of one lanyard workshop, two soccer games and 3 birthday parties to attend.

So pleased to know Hans is doing well!

NOW, he can enjoy ALL of those sweet delights, too!

We can smell the cookies, pies, cakes, bread and tortillas in Raton!

Love and hugs,
Aunt Susy
