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.

Scans this week

I haven't been posting as much because Hans has been doing better!
I never got Thursday's lab results and today's labs are on hold today because we have to be in LA tomorrow and Wednesday for scans. We appreciate your thoughts, prayers and good vibes for these scans. Th

Hans has one complaint, he says there is a little spot bothering him above his right temple, so that is frightening. But, I can't really feel anything, so I'm just crossing my fingers and praying like mad. Not only will we get scan results, but we will also find out if the FDA has approved to enroll Hans on a certain special therapy... I'll keep you posted. Tuesday we have the CT and the MIBG injection, Wednesday we have the MIBG scan and then meet with Dr. Araz Marachelian for the new plan. It has been such a nice long break, but I feel like I'm ready to see her, get these scans and make some treatment plans.
