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.

46 Mommas Slideshow

If you haven't caught a lot of Stand Up to Cancer stuff on the news (like me, somehow), check out this You Tube video. Shannon (the mommma from the woodlands) posted this on Sean's Caringbridge site yesterday. I borrowed. What an event! I sure think it's fun to hear about what is going on around the country to recognize Pediatric Cancer Awareness month.

Dates you might want to save for this month:

Monday, Sept 27th, The Big Day at Chili's, where ALL PROFITS earned that day are donated to St. Judes!


You might want to plan on being there for The World's Largest Ice Cream Social at
Cold Stone Creameries everywhere!, Thursday, Sept 30th 5 - 8 pm. Receive a free Kate's Creation ice cream. All donations that night will go to the Make-a-Wish foundation.

I love it! Please share with me more cool links you find. Thanks.

Oh, Hans now has Elle's cold:( We are laying low yet again. Another family kindly picked Elle up for soccer this morning. Thanks, Magees! I HATE to miss a game, but love to chill with Hans! We are on a board game thing lately - it's still toooo hoooot to hit our parks. Uno and every kind of Uno, Sponge Bob Game of life, Cranium games. It's fun now that he's really able to play with out cheating tooo badly.
