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.

Make A Wish

I found this link today. If you Write a Letter to Santa and drop it off at Macy's, they'll donate $1 to the Make A Wish Foundation, up to 1 million dollars. Clearly, this is right up Hans' alley, so he has already typed up his letter and we've printed it out. Its cool though, there's an online form to Santa, and your child can practice his/her computer literacy, decorate the letter, print it, then cut it out, and take it to Macy's. We'll have to hit the Macy's in Center City Philadelphia next week to get our selves into the holiday spirit.

Hans is Mr. Holiday Spirit. He has already had us doing a little holiday baking (gingerbread turkeys), and he has taken me to the store for a few more Thanksgiving decorations. He's got a little Martha Stewart in him, I guess. It's pretty cute!

I restored my little list of kids "Also in the Fight Against Relapse". These are just a few of the stories that have stolen my heart. I had accidentally deleted the whole column, but it's back.

Peace, Love & Cure,

Lara, I just wanted to point out that the letter needs to be in a STAMPED envelope addressed to Santa. I don't know why they require a stamp, but that hung us up last year.

Thanks for the link, I'm going to see about putting it on our DC Candlelighters blog. Good luck in Philly! -- Jen
