About Me

My photo
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.

Here's Hans' salute to the USA with a California Candle. He had a pretty great day yesterday. He grilled for our little house party of us, my mom and our neighbors, but opted out of swimming to conserve his energy for the night. He was up for a little Just Dance, a bike ride and then a good solid hour and a half of setting off fireworks! The Fourth is right up there with Christmas, his birthday and Halloween night. Good times! He's doing pretty well. Looks a little better since the stem cells. But he is having an occasional ache and pain. We'll start going in for counts twice weekly, and I'll probably go back to posting on the days we get results.
