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.

Anyone who's followed me for any length of time knows that I don't believe in coincidences. I believe that every person we meet, every conversation we have, every decision we make is an integral piece of the great jigsaw puzzle that is this life.

That said, it isn't completely lost on me that I'm experiencing ear infection-related hearing loss in my right ear right now, just as my sweet Logan is losing -- permanently -- the hearing in his own right ear. It's merely another tangible way that my sunshine and I are connected, and while mine (prayerfully!) is temporary and his is not, it gives me a window into his experience, a deeper, more profound understanding of a fraction of what he's going through as a direct result of the evil that is this cancer. It awakens in me a renewed sense of vigor, a refreshed sense of fight. Because, to be blunt, it sucks to be unable to hear, and it's easy to forget what a blessing all of my senses are when they're all in working order.

For all of this, I'm thankful.


  1. Another word for it is God-incidence : ) We prayed again for all of you at choir tonight. May there be much rest and healing in your home tonight. We love you guys!

  2. I don't really believe in coincidences, either.
