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.

Made Counts

Hans 'made counts' today with HGB of 10, Plts about 230 and ANC of a whopping 3700! Yipee. Unfortunately, we are not cleared to start med yet. We are waiting for the numbers to get to CHOP and be approved and for new med to be ordered. Hopefully this will all happen tomorrow.

We are reunited tonight. Kevin's been on a field school in Utah. I'm going to ask him to post some pics here for you. He has been gone '7 nights' and Hans has been very mature about counting down, missing daddy and literally, being attached to me at the hip.

I am copying this link from Erin's Blog. President Barack Obama made a Proclamation that September 2010 is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It's worth a read, for sure. Even though we live 'Childhood Cancer Awareness Life', this proclamation brings up many great points!
