- Hans Weberling
- 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.

Fun Run Smashing Success!
Elle, Anne (who ran Preggo!), Me, Dana, Carmen, Morgan, Ginger and Adrian after the run
Tamiko and Elle after it all. You can sure see Elle's cute winning tshirt design in this one!
I must tip my hat to first time Race Director, and NB mom to adorable Donovan, Tamiko Porter! Wow - way to throw a Fun RUN! Everyone kept telling me what a beautiful success the run was! Yes, indeed it was. I know the numbers aren't quite crunched yet, and I'm not about to 'Bug' Tamiko for a day or two, but we had 500 plus runners, a beautiful morning, and no real big snafus. Elle came in second in the Family Walk (a lot of the kids ran, and a 14 y. o. boy beat her:)
It's pretty cool to see all the NB mamas and a few papas out there doing their thing. I continually feel blessed that despite the fact we are all sharing the burden of this NB diagnosis, we are able to form a unique community with so many special families.
I want to thank my friends: Natalie, Jere, Michelle, Mark, Jack, Jace, Joshua, Carmen, Ginger, Dana, Morgan, Adrian, Anne, Stephanie, Tom, Reese, Marin, Beth, and Bud for coming out to run and walk with us. I want to thank RN's Marcelle and Dave for staffing the first aid booth! I'll update later when I hear how we did. It was fun. Not a bad birthday kick off:)
