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.

Life after loss: Hans Weberling
This New Year's Day will be Lara Cady Weberling's first since her 9-year-old son Hans lost his fight with neuroblastoma in September.
But even now, Weberling's hope shines through her tears. The generosity of supporters has sustained it.
Three weeks after Hans' diagnosis in 2006, friends organized a 5k run for the family in Houston and raised about $20,000.
"What's so beautiful about those funds is, the following June we found out about the CNCF conference. It was only about three weeks away. Since we had those funds, we were able to fly our family of four up there on short notice. We learned so much about neuroblastoma. It was such a great benefit to us."

A Texas-sized bake sale
Neuroblastoma supporters in Houston raised $3,250 and paid tribute to an angel, Hans Weberling, during their holiday bake sale at Texas Children's Hospital on December 7.
"These are Texas-sized bake sales, something like 10 cafeteria tables full of items," said Lara Cady Weberling, who spearheaded the first bake sale in February 2008 when son Hans was going through neuroblastoma treatment
