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.

Merry Christmas

A very hearty Merry Christmas to all of you. My tank is just about empty, but I wanted to stop by and wish you all the best today. We had a nice day together, our first Christmas as a family of six. Logan was, predictably, the first one up, followed in relatively short order by Abby and Isaac. Brady was out cold, but the other three took care of it for us and he too was up and ready for action before 7:30 a.m. There was much good cheer, laughter and wrapping paper strewn about the living room by the time we were finished, all markers of a successful morning. The rest of the day was spent playing new games, hanging out in PJs and (if you were me and Brady) sleeping.

I, unfortunately, am not feeling fabulous, and downed some nighttime sinus medicine a few minutes ago to try to combat my sniffles, so I'm already falling asleep here at my keyboard. I'm hoping it's a transitory allergy-related issue, but I guess I'll see for sure soon enough. The idea of being sick around Logan makes me nervous, at best, even though he has a white count right now. If you feel compelled, please pray for my health.

Anyway, my best wishes to you and your family. Many blessings to you, and thank you as always for your continued prayers for my sunshine.


  1. Praying for your family, as has become my habit. Prayers first of thanksgiving to God for answering our prayers for you six to spend your first family together at home. Now also offering up prayers of protection and healing for each of you. I do hope that your sniffles are allergy related, are gone by morning, and that they don't spread to anyone else. Merry Christmas Sherry ans sweet dreams!

  2. Sounds like a great day...hope your sniffles are nothing major.
