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.

A Day on the Breakfast Tray...

Just a typical day on the breakfast tray!

If your kid has a pedi cancer - you may be able to relate here. Thier taste buds can get pretty fried, like Hans, about to start his 39th round of treatment. He will only eat what he wants to eat, when he wants to eat it! I relate it to how I felt being first pregnant. I just couldn't stomach certain things.
So, this is what he's into every morning these days! It's one reason I'm truly pleased with homebound. I don't know how I could rouse him early enough to get a bunch of this stuff in him and still have him sitting in class at 8am.

Good news on the homebound front: Hans' sessions have increased from 2 sessions per week to four! I'm pretty excited about this. We lost Ms. O :( We'll meet Ms. Yokam and we'll get to mix Ms. Kathy back in from last year. I'm excited. We'll see what Hans thinks.

23 more days to vote. You can vote in Pepsi's Refresh Everything give away for Arms Wide Open Here, or by texting Text* 102653 to Pepsi (73774). AND by voting for Support Kids Cancer Research HERE or Text* 102462 to Pepsi (73774)! Sorry if that's confusing. But, the top two projects each win 250K! Why not nominate both?

Thank you thank thank you!

AWO is now #11 - that is soooo cool!
Thanks for reminding us to vote and posting the link. I can't get over how easy; but, at the same time, how important it is to raise the funds essential to do the work that has to be done to help all these sweet kids!
Love and Prayers,
