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.

The Logan Update: 12/16/10

Sorry this is brief; I'm a bit tired, to put it mildly. Here's the info I want to pass along, just to help make your prayers more pointed.

Logan still has a highish fever, and is not feeling particularly well. In order for him to come home, we need the following things to come to pass:

1 - Negative blood cultures.
2 - No fever for 48 consecutive hours. The moment he spikes a fever, the count begins anew.
3 - An ANC (absolute neutrophil count) of greater than 200. (Today's number was 88, so he appears to be making progress in this department.)

He also needs to look better overall and have manageable pain.

Thank you in advance for interceding and for helping us to fight this battle. We really need him home as soon as is possible, and I know that when we call upon the Lord, all things -- ALL THINGS -- are possible, even when situations seem most dire. Blessings.


  1. Praying, Sherry. Yes, ALL things are possible with Him!

  2. I said three very specific prayers.

  3. Glad the infection was caught NOW and not in a few more days. He'll be home for Christmas as soon as those antibiotics kick in. AND he will be feeling better. Rest up mommy and don't over due it. xoxo

  4. Praying now for negative blood cultures, fever free starting immediately, and continued improvement of his ANC, blowing right by the magic 200!! I hope you are able to get some sleep in your own bed tonight : ) Welcome home Brady, now we can channel all our energy on bringing Logan home too.

  5. Praying and continuing to pray.

  6. God bless all of you. I know that your prayers will be answered. God is good and I pray that he will bestow many blessings on you all this Christmas.
