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.

Good News

Just got back from our appointment with Dr. Mosse. I have to be quick b/c we have to check out. Overall take on things: "slightly improved!" Hallelujah! MIBG scan appears now to be only the one spot on skull, now fainter. Bone Marrows and CT were clear. "It means we're doing the right thing" is how Kevin sums it up. We will start Round 8, and return to Philly end of June for more scans. Just the MIBG next time.

Thanks Michelle for taking such good care of our other beautiful baby, and alana for taking care of les chats!
