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.

As Logan's mom, I feel like I can't, or at least shouldn't, complain about my own health-related issues. After all, I've watched my little boy endure so, so much more than most people could ever even fathom going through over the course of an entire, normal lifetime.

But I have to say it: I feel terrible. My ear has still yet to return to normal, and now my throat hurts. A lot. Given the state of my poor ear, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if it's merely post nasal drip. It seems to get better in the morning, worse at night, although that may be because I've made liberal use of Tylenol, ibuprofen and throat spray to cope. If you will, please pray that these symptoms will alleviate themselves so I can enjoy the upcoming week. Abby has Spring Break, so it would be nice to have some good family time.

Logan has, so far, managed to avoid the worst of the nasty bug that we've been hosting here for the past several weeks. Please pray that that will continue to be the case so his treatment can continue on schedule. In addition, please pray for my little Brady. He woke up this morning with his dear little eyes stuck shut and an extremely stuffy nose. I took him to the doctor and he's on antibiotic eyedrops, but I know that it could well get worse before it gets better.

As always, thank you for your prayers. I've been struck lately -- repeatedly -- that I need to just get out of the boat and trust, so I'm trying to do that. I feel like all of this illness that's befallen our family is a sign -- albeit an unpleasant one -- that things are going in the right direction with Logan's treatment and progress. After all, I believe that when God scores victories, there are pushbacks from the other side. Thank you for praying for protection for our family as we continue along his road. Blessings to you.
