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.

A New Request

I had a number of thoughts today as I watched my four beautiful children -- one happily snoozing in his MamaRoo, and other three coloring -- and I want to share them at some point, but tonight I have a singular purpose for posting. Tonight I'm asking you to pray for not only my sweet boy, but for a friend of Adam's from high school who's going through a trying, challenging experience of her own.

Katy went into labor Sunday night, but failed to progress after several days. She finally had an emergency c-section Wednesday after spiking a high fever, and gave birth to baby girl M, who wasn't breathing. Katy is in one hospital, dealing with what turned out to be an e.coli infection, while baby M is in the NICU at CHO. At first, the doctors thought that baby M would die, and then they said she might live, but would be brain-dead. As of now, she's responsive, but they don't know the extent of the damage from the infection and oxygen deprivation. I'm asking all of you to please, please lift up Katy, baby M and their family as they suffer through this uncertain time. I ask you to pray for a speedy recovery for Katy, and for health for baby M. Katy has been a big blessing to me in particular as we've gone through our journey with Logan, often asking how he's doing and what she can do to help.

Thank you all for your continued prayers. Have a great weekend.

  2. Definately praying for Katy and baby M. and reposting for more prayer warriors. Also, continuing to pray Logan doesn't catch the yuckies going around, and you all heal quickly.

    Love in Christ,

  3. Certainly happy to add your friends to our prayers. Having gone through complicated pregnancies that became life threatening for baby and mommy, I always hold these stories especially close to my heart. I pray for both Katy and Baby M to improve dramatically! I am praying that Katy gets released really soon so she can get to her newborn, it will help them both heal : ) Not slowing down on any of the prayers for your crew though, don't worry.
