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.

Bill Crews Remission Run Tomorrow

I have to give a shout out to our friend Blair. Even though you've just fought cancer yourself, you are running the Bill Crews Remission Run in Hans' Honor! Thanks to the Kleins, I know one of you guys are running it for Hans as well. So many people doing so many good things:) I think the Children's Run this year is in Carlie's honor. <3
I love these stories of people doing good. Bill beat cancer and on his 5 year anniversary he started this run along with his wife. All proceeds go to research at MD Anderson. The race is tomorrow and I think it's bittersweet for me to think of all the kiddos running for Carlie tomorrow!

Hans' counts are still rockin' - they haven't dropped too much yet, HGB in the 10's, Plts at 73, and ANC is 1700. I think the plan is to get his stem cells next week, but we need to confirm this with these great counts!!!
