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.

Wow - I have to say we're touched by Hans' Five Year Campaign Kick Off. I love it! Each little tribute makes me tear up a little bit! THANK YOU, if you haven't visited his site yet, please check it out here: http://www.cncfparks.org/help-a-child/park/21/ It's amazing to me. I have a 'secret' goal, and it looks like we'll get there!

For the next two weeks there's another way to donate to the CNCF in Hans' honor - by checking off a few items on your Christmas list! Hans' Godmama Roxie operates 'Scarf it up Santa Cruz' and she's decided to donate 15% of her jewelry and necklace scarf sales to the CNCF in Hans' honor from this weekend's crafts fair, and from her Internet sales for the next two weeks. www.scarfitupsantacruz.com
You can find her craft fair this weekend at:
From Pumpkins to Presents Gift Fair Saturday, October 29, 10am-3pm Cypress Community Church: 681 Monterey-Salinas Hwy., Salinas CA

Hans had an Office Visit today and didn't need blood! There's more to report from the OV, but I'll save it - I've gone on and on.

Thanks for checking up on us and thanks for contributing to Hans' 'Five Year Campaign!'

I also must thank aunt Susy for her Halloween artsy care package that kept us busy in the hosp, and Tracy for her special HEB care package. Leave it to Hans to miss the HEB (Texas grocery store) line of chicken noodle soups and kids shampoo and body wash, and leave it to Tracy to fill his order!

I can only imagine the Aunty Susy package of fun. :) And a big yay too to HEB care packages. HEB is the BEST. You can tell Hans that when I go back to Texas, I wander the aisles whistfully.

Mucho love,
