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.

81 F/ 61 F

I think that's all I need to say. It's beautiful here. All we want to do is be outside! Hans got the mail for my mom on the way home from the airport and he said, I'll just walk, I just want to be in the cool air.

It's nice. We are taking it easy so far. Logging in a lot of swinging and swimming time with various combos of family members. We'll look forward to seeing a few friends too.

Hans is already on Day 3 of Round 12 of MLN 8237. So far, so good. We will bring Hans in for labs twice next week here at Children's (Seattle). We'll also head east of the mountains to see our relatives there and meet the new pony at Grandma Kathy's/Grandpa Dale's.

A couple of our NB comrades could use a few extra prayers tonight - Evan, Katie and Sal!
