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.

Oahu, Day 3

Hi - wow - we've been here about 48 hours now. Feels good!

Yesterday we hit the Waikiki beach, twice, for boogie boarding. Hans is pretty good at it! Today, we visited the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve for snorkeling- -again, Hans is pretty good at it. He is only limited by a lack of body fat, so he gets chilly quickly (even in Hawaii - but Elle did have goose bumps too). We had to take a few breaks to warm up on the shore. We saw a bunch of beautiful fish in the reef.

We have a great room, at the east end of Waikiki pretty much where it meets Kapiolani park. It's great for a morning walk. Our favorite foods here have been teriyaki and shaved ice. Hans said we should get a house here:)

Oh, Round 21 of Millennium is on hold for right now. Hans is still pretty congested and the docs suggested we give him a break til Monday. That's the scoop for now.
