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.

There's a Monkey in Hans' in Chair

There's a Monkey in Hans' Chair! Even though Hans isn't cleared to go to school these days, his little monkey he named Pokey is going for him.

I attended his classroom's Open House last night. Mrs. Parker is just fabulous. She is making a very special effort to make Hans a part of her class, even though he is starting out the year right here at home. He has a desk, a chair, and Pokie can go to school for him. Check out There's a Monkey in my Chair! This sweet little program was developed in honor of a girl named Chloe who had to go on homebound after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. Unfortunately, Chloe lost her battle, but what a special legacy to leave other kids in her shoes. You can order a kit, or sponsor a kit through the link.

How cool is that! We hope Hans is able to go check on Pokey's progress once in a while and join in the special events as his counts allow. Maybe when Hans is in the baking mood, he can make cookies and take them to school for Pokey and classmates. And kudos to Mrs. Parker for making Hans feel like a part of the classroom!

Hugs to all of you.
Love, G.Kathy & G.Dale xoxo
