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.

Made Counts:-)

The kids with Jack Josh and Jace on an ice cream run
Yeah! We made counts today. Thank goodness. We don't like being off meds for too long.
Well, obviously that's the goal - to be off meds, eventually. But, you know what I mean.

Hans has actually been pretty happy and busy right now, despite the little low counts and fever. We are loving summer. We spend lots o time at the pool. Sometimes we even go twice a day - crazy. I just like having kids over, being busy, running around... we all love it. Our friend and neighbor, Lisa, has agreed to tutor Hans to help make up a little ground on reading. We just had our first session yesterday and she's pretty good. Hans should be in good shape for first. I really think it was just that he didn't get A LOT of time in Kinder...
