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.

An Urgent Request

This is Logan's blog, yes, and it's not often that I stray from our family's journey, but tonight I have an urgent prayer request for another family suffering with a brain tumor. Some of you know to whom I refer: Kate McRae is a few years older than Logan, and has been through just about the same treatment protocol as Logan to combat her tumor. Today she had an MRI that revealed at least one new spot on her brain. Although I've never met her mother, Holly, much of what she's written over time resonates with me deeply. Please pray for Kate and her family as they await additional news. Pray for peace, strength, perseverance and grace. And for healing for this dear little girl. I was heartbroken to read her update, and hope that you'll all remember her tonight.


As for us, we're awaiting the results of Logan's MRI. Philippa should be calling with the details sometime in the morning. I'm nervous, but realize that I can't control anything, so I'm doing my best to release my anxieties to God. Please continue to pray for Logan's complete healing and for peace and harmony within our family.

There's so much more for me to say, but Brady -- who had a horrible day -- is stirring and looking like he may implode at any second.

Thank you and good night.


  1. I said a little prayer for her tonight when we talked. That was before you knew the results. I have no words. . . Don't allow those results to cloud your thoughts. You need to stay positive tonight. I plan to go light candles for Logan and my Dad this week and I will light one for Kate!

  2. I am so sorry Sherry that I haven't been here so much lately. Unfortunately, mom's cancer is back and she has been in the hospital since 1/22/11. This has meant very little computer time for me. Please know that the prayers certainly have not slowed down or stopped. I wear a teal bracelet for mom, since teal is the color for ovarian cancer, and my prayers for logan in blue. All day long as I move through my day, wash my hands, take jackets on and off, I am constantly reminded to PRAY for them.

  3. I don't know the details of the news you received today, but if you're crushed, then my heart is very heavy. :( I'm holding out hope and praying and hoping. Please know there are so many people that care about you and Logan. I know it's such a small thing when you must be hurting so much, but you haven't left my thoughts.
