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.

Home with no pain

Just to quickly let you know that we are all home now! Hans has been pain free, just as we had hoped and prayed! I feel like if I were counting, this would be, what, Hans' 17th miracle??? He'd be in the pool, but for his Insuflon.. his subcutaneous shot device. That'll keep him out of the water 'til we pop it out on Thursday. I'm praying the pain will stay away. But I wanted you to get the happy news with us:) A few more thank you's... thanks to Mich for the soup and books! Thanks to mystery friend for the amphibious rv device! Thanks to Edgington's for the cool Bionicle waiting for us in the mail box. And, thanks again to my mom for coming:)

Good to see Hans is feeling so much better. Was hoping he'd be up and around, but just in case he wasn't, I thought the remote control could be fun in the pool or on land...mystery solved. Hope you're all having a great weekend!
Love Aunt Holly and Uncle Michael
