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.

Second Place

I almost can't believe it, Arms Wide Open is in second place! It just tells me that NB families are organized and they can and do mobilize people to make a difference. All the stories of our kids are so gripping. They are so heartbreaking, and there is such hope that all of it can change with key treatment findings of the future. I have to live with that hope! Every couple of days I stumble across the statistics..."there is no known cure for relapsed NB, ...survival stats hover around 5%..." I don't dwell on these or think of them often because those stats are based on yesterday's research. There are efforts going on all over the country and the world to make the change. We are in a battlefield and we've already lost so much. We'll never forget the angels amongst us. And still, tomorrow is an entirely different ballgame.

That's how I have to operate anyway!

And one more link: watch this You Tube video, Abby Miller sings for Taylor Love, promoting the Arms Wide Open Vote. Talk about gripping!

Stephanie... I log in and vote several times a day online. I figure it's okay because I'm using the log in. It usually makes me wait an hour between votes. It only allows me to text for each issue one time per day per cell phone line.

Mrs. Parker's class - I forgot to answer your question, Elle's team is in BLUE:-) That is Elle there, no. 41.

Peace, Love & Cure,
