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.

"This is a Job for Oxi Clean"

I think Hans has a little bit of a pitch man in him; those Billy Mays commercials strike a cord. A couple of weeks ago he convinced me that our household needed Oxi Clean. We picked some up, and now every time he catches me doing laundry, and I am holding up a stained garment (like Elle's soccer socks after last night's endurance training...in the MUD) he comes running into the room, with his finger pointing up saying, "This is a job for Oxi Clean!" He then eagerly gives the load of laundry all of his special attention.

I guess things are going well around here if all I have to report on is the laundry.

I wanted to add another update, though, to let everyone know that the two NB Pepsi Refresh Everything causes are gaining ground. Arms Wide Open has stepped into the 7th slot (just 5 to go to get the prize) and Support Kids Cancer Research has taken the 88th slot. Just 86 places to move up to win a prize. If you're fighting relapsed Neuroblastoma, you've got to cultivate that wild optimism. Vote 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)!
