- 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.

Dinner and a GoKart Ride
So, it's Mother's Day! Happy Mother's Day to all the mama's out there. Especially to our moms and grandmas! Stephanie, Kathy, Jean, Diana and Shirley too! xoxo My heart is also with all the angel mamas out there. I read online today that Mother's Day was originally developed to honor mothers of fallen soldiers and to repair families destroyed by the civil war.
It is not even hard for me to have Hans admitted today on Mother's Day. Although it is sad that we are leaving Kevin and Elle here to trek down to LA. I am just excited that we are helping him. And, I get to spend Mother's Day with my mom for the first time in about a dozen years since we moved out of state.
I know a lot of people cannot fathom our sustained fight against NB. But, you know what, primal instinct just takes over. There's no "choice", no other desire. Sure, your heart and soul lament the "normal" everyday life experiences of your peers. Your heart laments and covets a healthy boy. But, there is a tidal wave of protective instinct and you do everything you think you can do for your boy, for your kid. It's a powerful force. You just look at your boy, his gigantic eyes, you see the fight is there, you see the hope and faith. You hear him talking about his future plans. Lately his has been talking about the apartment he will get in the foothills one day! You just do what you gotta do.
