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: 1/26/2011

It seems I've been remiss in updating! Thanks to Jen for the swift kick in the keyboard. (And happy birthday again! How did we get so old? Wasn't I just sending you an email wishing you a happy #21 just last year?)

Anyway, Logan did indeed come home as planned at the close of my last entry. He's been about as close to normal as ever, save a few vomiting spells and some extra whininess. (And his dogged refusal to don day clothes in the morning.) It's nice to have him here and comfortable. A blessing.

And it makes me realize how crazy my life has become! Three kids was a breeze for me; the toughest part was remembering that extra little warm body. But four is a different story. It's all about the chaos.

But today I'm choosing to be thankful for that craziness, because had things gone differently over the past several months, my house might be quiet. So I thank God for the noise, for the insanity, for the mess, for the disorder, for the carpet that's never devoid of toys for more than 30 minutes, for the fussing, for the kitchen counter that's cluttered with artwork and for every time I've wanted to smack someone's tushie today. And above all, for giving me the chance to even feel that frustration via my FOUR lovely, rambunctious, nutty, sweet, precocious and just plain precious children.

As I've said before... praise the Lord anyhow! And in this case, BECAUSE.


  1. LOL! Love it! Thank you so much, Sweetheart! And I will always be much older than you! But still not smarter or more well-read.... *grin*

  2. Great perspective :-) I'm so glad Logan is home again! xoxo

  3. Love it. It is all perspective isn't it. So thankful you have your four together. God bless Sherry ~

  4. Praise God for the craziness indeed!!!! Glad Logan is home and your life is a bit "typical" chaotic for awhile. Praying for continued health for Logan and sleep for Mommy.

  5. Yay! So glad that no news really is GREAT news :)Thank you Jesus that Sherry, Adam, and their FOUR beautiful children are adjusting to actually being a family of six. Thank you for bringing Logan home. We continue to pray for rest for all of you, protection for Logan, complete healing for Logan, and AMAZING news from the MRI next week.
