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.

Hans' Birthday

Our beautiful boy would be a teenager.  Hans would have been 13 years old today.  I wonder what kind of a kid would he have grown into.  Would he have been a gamer? a surfer a skater? a soccer or a guitar player?  Would he have done his school work?  I know he would have been sooo smart, I know he would have been sooooo into whatever he was into!   How tall would he be?  Would his hair have gotten much darker?  Would he wear it long or keep it short?

We all wish like crazy that we could keep him with us.  I can't even imagine what his friends would be like now, or all the silly inside jokes he and Elle would have about us!  Of course he left a wide wake.

However, we will always carry him with us, and bring him along wherever we go and no matter what we do.  We'll love and cherish him all the rest of our lives.  And we know that each day that passes brings us closer to him.

We are celebrating all that was so special about you today, Hans.
