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.

Another Great Bake Sale

We heard from our friends back in Texas that we had another fabulous Holiday Bake sale.  This year it was extra special because our friends were able to deliver all those donated toys and PJs to the 9th floor (inpatient cancer floor), the 8th floor (bone marrow transplant), the Cancer Center Clinic, and our friends were able to play Ms. Claus and let kids "shop" for toys right off the Bake Sale Tables.  How special!  I've never seen that done.  We sure appreciated Hans being remembered in a such a special way.  He loved it, of course, when our days would be brightened by something fun!  Thank you, friends!

We have heard the totals, and so far, we had a 2850 count, plus $450 in online contributions, for a grand total of $3,300 (maybe still counting??).  That's about our biggest total yet.  Thanks so very much to everyone who baked, volunteered, donated toys and PJ's, and everyone who shopped that day as well.  Thanks to those who donated towards the Houston Bake Sale online, too.  It's all adding up.  To date, our 'Texas Sized' Bake Sales have brought in nearly $35,000 for NB research and Education.
