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.

Online registration closes tonight

Just a quick note to those of you who were wanting to register for our Inaugural NBHOPE 5K Fun Run. Online registration closes tonight at 9:59pm, so register HERE if you were planning on it! Thanks to all of you who already have.

Thanks also to those of you back home who are sending $$ for the tshirts and the raffle tickets!

I am going to TRY to make it to packet pick up tonight. I'll pick up my Woodlands friends walkers packets and get them to you Friday - or you can come by my place.

Government funding is TOO small to fund enough novel treatments for NB. Grassroots organizations are making a difference. Thanks for your ongoing support! I know - us pedi cancer parents always have our hands out, huh? I'm just hopeful that I'd be nearly as supportive as some of you if the shoe were on the other foot.
