- Hans Weberling
- 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.

Hey there - we got labs back --- pretty much more of the same. Platelets are just hanging out in the 30's (33), HGB just dropped under 10, but at least the ANC is Robust at 4000! We'll just ride it out and see if they come up to stay.
Mrs. Hodges' class invited us to join them for their school's Relay for Life today, the last day before break. The class honored Hans as well as Mr. Hodges as he has just been declared No Evidence of Disease after a bout with Melanoma. Whew. Their chants were Awesome! "Stop Melanoma, Stop Melanoma, What? Stop Melanoma, Stop Melanoma Yeah! Stop Melanoma, Stop Melanoma, Boom. Dueces." And the other chant: "Hans! Hans! Hans! Hans! Hans! Hans! Hans! Hans!"
It's a good day when you are riding a cool boy's shoulders (thanks, Junior!) and a seventh grade class is chanting your name:) Thanks also to Elle, Madi, Claire, Eszter, Dazmond, Mrs. Hodges and the rest of the class for making Hans a part of things. Thanks, too, to Brady for the Angry Bird, Roman for the Lego, Mrs. A for the Ninjago and Aaron for the shirt!!! sheesh.
