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.

And the Winner is...

I am pleased to announce that the winner of the NB HOPE 5K Fun Run/Walk T-Shirt design contest is our very own:

We had a lot of fabulous entries to choose from. The final decision was made by the graphic artist. I sure thank everyone who took the time to submit an entry. We are going to try to get those up on the run website, I think! We must have had 20 - 30 entries. I wish I could upload an image of the shirt, but I'm not quite sure I'm able to do that.

If you can't get here to the run, and you'd like a shirt, they are available for a Ten Dollar (or more) donation to the CNCF plus $2 shipping and handling. Just let me know how many you want, what sizes, and let me know by Aug 10, 2010. We have to get our order in by then.

So, Let me know by leaving a comment here, or by emailing me at: kevinandlara@hotmail.com

To say that we started painting the little bathroom this weekend should indicate that we were not quite frolicking out and about in the sun and waves! Hans has had a few headaches and curiously vomited one time this weekend. You may recall that with Hans' Adrenal Insufficiency, two good vomiting sessions usually throw his electrolytes out of whack enough to require about 24 hours of fluids (inpatient!) So - at least it didn't go that way! Thanks for the love.
