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.

Special Tribute Bake Sale at TCH Friday

I'm sharing this nice email I got from the CNCF today.  Thanks Charon and Jenn and all our friends in Houston for   the TCH Bake Sale!  The Bake Sale has raised $31,000 and counting since the original Valentines Day, 2008 Bake Sale.  That's a Texas Sized Bake sale, for ya...  Hans loved to help bake and he liked to watch me count up the money and hear how much we raised for the CNCF.  He loved to rake it in!

Special tribute to Hans Weberling at annual Houston holiday bake sale
Neuroblastoma supporters in Houston will pay special tribute to an angel, Hans Weberling, during their annual bake sale at Texas Children's Hospital on Friday, December 7, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Organizers will be collecting some of Hans' favorite things -- soft pajamas, Transformers and Bionicles toys, and Legos - to give away to children in the hospital. New and unwrapped toys and gifts will be accepted up until the day of the bake sale.
Donations of all sorts of baked goodies are welcome: cookies, candies, cakes and pies (whole or sliced), cupcakes, muffins, as well as sugar-free or gluten-free items - as long as they do not require refrigeration. Labeling foods (especially those containing allergens like nuts) is very important, and clear packaging is best to entice buyers.
"This is a great event to support for anyone who needs to fulfill a community service project," says Pat Tallungan, president of CNCF. "I'm eternally grateful to the commitment our Houston families have continued to make over the years to support CNCF's mission."
Every dollar raised go to the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation to fund research, awareness and education. Hans' family has raised more than $13,000 through a virtual park they set up online in his honor at www.cncfparks.org. Hans recently lost his battle with cancer.
If baking isn't your thing, you can make a monetary donation online. Go to www.cncfhope.organd click on "Donate Now." Be sure to select "Houston Bake Sale" from drop-down menu.
Parents of current or former cancer patients are also invited to send or bring in a picture of their child to display during the event. To drop off photos or baked goods, or to volunteer, email Charon Edgington atCharonEdgington@comcast.net , or Jennifer Pigott at jenniferpigott@att.net.
