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.

We had to take Hans into the ER yesterday for fever:( He had a really high HR and a really high white blood count. It could be that the lymph nodes are getting infected. He seems to be responding incredibly well to IV Antibiotics and blood and platelet infusions. His heart dropped from the 150's to the 90's. I am pleading our case for a birthday furlough if it is at all safe to do so! We hope that we will soon be on the road home to have as happy a birthday as possible!
