About Us

Our family of 6 (dad Adam, mom Sherry, big sister Abby and little brothers Isaac and Brady -- who was born on December 14, 2010) joined the ranks of pediatric cancer fighters when our 4-year old son Logan was diagnosed with a dangerous and highly malignant form of brain cancer in mid-August 2010. Logan's cancer journey began abruptly on Sunday, August 15, when his right eye suddenly turned inward during dinner. Twenty-four hours later, we were checking into Children's Hospital Oakland and finding out that life sometimes takes you places you'd never, ever imagine yourself going.

Apprehensive 11/5/10

It's been on my heart on and off again over the past 24 hours so I thought I'd write it out here.

Tonight (or more accurately, at 2 AM), Logan will have the last drug of cycle 3: Methotrexate. The knockout drug for his particular type of tumor. It's also the drug that causes the absolute worst side effects, and the one that may have opened the door to the awful infection he had during cycle 2.

If you will, please pray against the negative side effects. Aggressively. He could use a much milder case of mucusitis, and protection against the infections that can result when he gut is inflamed by the medication.

Thanks, and happy Friday.
