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.

Back in'jail'

We were probably counting our blessings to be home for seven nights. But a lowgrade fever and a bloody nose bought us a night at chla. We r in the ER now. Platelets are 5. ANC is 180:( I hope to do some fast talking and break us outta here tomorrow for some trick or treatin! We shall see. Hans is getting anti bs now and is about to get platelets. He needs them, that's for sure! Thank you to those who donate blood and platelets. That's a special lifesaving gift. Thank you. You can imagine how we feel to be here, the night before Halloween. Hans calls it jail or prison. I just hope that the chemo is doing the same number on the tumor that it's doing to the counts. Until Nov 10th I'm pasting this message up, again and again. Other NB kiddos can open their own parks up as well. It's a new program...just now up and running:).
Thanks for your donations to Hans' CNCF Park! http://www.cncfparks.org/help-a-child/park/21/ check it out today, it's AMAZING. And, don't forget you can also Scarf it Up! for a cure 15% of Internet sales go to Hans' Five Year Campaign through November 10th. Thank you, everyone for your kindness and generosity. I read each tribute to Hans and he is really getting a kick out of it!
