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.

Something Sweet We Can All Do...

I just became aware of a little boy named Noah who is likely losing his cancer fight in the near future. His request is to receive many many early Christmas Cards. It's such a sweet and simple request, I'm sure we can help to make that happen. If you wish, just drop a Christmas Card in the mail to:

Noah Biorkman

1141 Fountain View Circle

South Lyon, MI 48178

Here's a weblink to a site that tells a little more about the story.
Copy/paste, sorry:

I'm sure putting this up on our blog will get a few more cards in the mail...Maybe even 20 or so from a third grade class in NM?

Hans is doing okay. Right now we are on alert - watching for clues that Hans is possibly suffering from what Elle had over the weekend...does it never end??? Ugh, So now we are keeping an even closer eye on him. Thanks to my brother, Tom, who got him an early Christmas gift of the newest Optimus Prime - he is busy today popping and slapping and transforming that guy into a semi. Fun, fun, fun! The gorgeous weather here has been getting Hans and I out and about to a new park each day - I can watch how he uses that arm. Looks good! He also is writing and coloring okay...
