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.

Update on Baby M

Since a few of you have asked and we're more or less status quo here, I thought I'd give a very quick update on Baby M. Katy contacted me earlier today to let me know that they got to take her home yesterday and that she's doing much better than initially expected. Prayers work, peeps! Thank you so much for continuing to hold her and her family in your thoughts and prayers. I know they appreciate it.


Today Logan was feeling enough improved that I thought we should make use of the Groupon I bought a few weeks ago and visit the Easter Bunny at the Mall. I know: I'm probably one of precious few who bother to have my kids sit on Bun E. Rabbit's lap every year, but I do. And right now, I'm taking advantage of every photo op that presents itself. So we did that, had lunch and then I decided spur-of-the-moment to take a quick Easter picture at JCPenney, just because they were all dressed up in Easter clothes. And because, well, like I said, I take advantage of every single opportunity. I got that single decent photo, which wound up being a challenge because Logan smacked the top of his head against the wall in the studio and cried for several minutes before the shoot. He was okay, just scared, but it put a damper on things and left me feeling tired. And frustrated, in that unproductive 'why is this happening to us?' way.

I had a great chat with my older brother (hi Bobby, now that I know you're reading along) this evening, which was welcomed, as I don't see family nearly enough these days. And then the congestion that I felt creeping in overnight hit me with a vengeance. I'm once again stuffy-headed, much to my annoyance. My throat is less painful and I can hear more (though not perfectly) through my right ear, but now I'm congested. It never ends, it seems.

On that note, please continue and ramp up the prayers for health and healing. Logan is still congested, but seemed better today. So far, it hasn't impacted his treatment. Brady is also still congested. We need to be healthy in order to cope with the months to come.

Thank you for being a part of Logan's team.
