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.

In the news

Some of our friends and comrades are in the news these days, for good and for sad reasons.

A little girl at TCH, Layla Grace, whom I haven't yet met, relapsed just after completing transplant. She is not in a good place. Please send some love and prayers her way. Her mom just shared their story with Ryan Seacrest on his radio program earlier this week. She's a beauty! http://www.ryanseacrest.com/audio/?MediaID=628

Also, Team Shaving for Seany made The Woodlands Villager this week! Check out the link - http://www.hcnonline.com/articles/2010/03/04/woodlands_villager/news/wv-n_st._baldrick_s_0304.txt Well done, Shannon, on promoting this event. I found out from this article that you can also come out the day of to get a Locks of Love haircut if you have 10 inches to donate. Check it out at www.stbaldricks.org. Again, Kevin is signed up to shave. But I must say that lately a good fourth of our plans end up not happening due to some unforeseen circumstance, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

More later!
