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.

Day 1, Round 13

Hans got the thumbs up to Start Round 13 of the Millennium (Aurora A Kinase Inhibitor) or MLN8237. At least we are safely two days away from the 13th! Although I usually do everything in my power to get everything going on time, every time, that was just bad juju to start Round 13 on the 13th... Especially when Hans relapsed on his 13th Round of ABT751. Okay, that's all I'll say about that. I'm just really praying that we continue to get the stable to improved scans we've been getting. Our next scan dates are 10/5 and 10/6. Thanks for any positive vibes, thoughts and prayers you can offer Hans for continued good news on those scans.

We are all preparing for the Bake 2 School Bake Sale down at TCH to benefit the CNCF! It's been a while since we had a bake sale and I'm trying to be even more organized than usual.

I wanted to share a couple thank you's:

This was all donated! Thanks to Kevin's Aunt Holly for beading and donating all of these lovely lanyards just in time for the next bake sale. And thanks also to Lana Williams Gallery in Old Town Spring. Charon got this local artisan to hand craft, weld and donate two of these stands for our cause. Awesome!
