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.

Full Circle

Logan's chemo journey came to a close today in somewhat unusual fashion: The very same nurse who hung his first-ever dose back in September just happened to remove the bag that contained his final dose after it finished today. Strange, isn't it? There are many, many nurses at CHO and this particular gal isn't one we've had often at all. Yet somehow, quiet Mary Jane bookended his chemo.

Please keep praying. Logan's fever persisted today. The blood culture showed an infection in the blue lumen of his chemo port. It's happened before, but he's incredibly miserable right now and it pains us to see him in such a sad state, with a high fever, chills, incessant vomiting and horrible nausea. Please pray that God will transform this time of sadness and suffering into one of great gladness and, well, redemption. We want to have a joyful testimony to share.

Blessings and good night.


  1. I pray, pray, pray! that it will be the last chemo bag ever put into that sweet boy's little body!
    I'm so sorry he is in pain. Its hard to find the right words to express how I just hate to hear that. I hope it shall pass.

  2. It makes me sad, too, that Logan is feeling so miserable right now. We continue to lift him up to the Lord often, praying that he will soon be 100% well again. Our love to you all.

  3. That bookended image is interesting.

    I'm sorry that he's feeling so ill. I hope this is the end of the chemo for him forever.

  4. Sherry,
    I haven't had computer access for days and so when I read your last few entries I was concerned. Concerned about all of you. As I have said before, I don't know you. I have always been a bit afraid of posting. Why would you be comforted by anything I could say to you? But I guess because we are human, because it is programed within us to love these small human beings we bring into the world through God's grace, because we have been where you are, I cannot help but follow your family's jouney. I cannot help posting when I read the words of my heart in your writing. I cannot help but stop and pray for Logan's healing through out the day. I cannot help praying for you and Adam and your entire family.I am compelled.
    Tonight as I wait for our 'changed' daughter to get into bed, I would like to tell you from one mother to another; our children, our families, our hearts are changed forever by the chips and cracks. But the beauty is still there, the love, the spirit. Aren't these nicks and cracks what develops the patina on a priceless antique?

    Let Him carry you all in His Healing Loving arms.

    Peace and rest be with you, in Jesus' name.


  5. Praying for all these things and waiting in eager anticipation of the joyful testimony!

  6. PRAYING hard for this to mark the joyful and triumphant END to this horrible battle Logan and your whole family has been fighting for the past 9 months. Praying that every last med will have done it's work in getting this out of his little body and that God will seal him up TIGHT so that it will not re-enter!
    Not sure what exactly it is, but I really enjoyed the symmetry of Mary Jane starting and ending his meds....it feels like a good and final thing. Praying it IS!
    Love you guys, hugs to all of you, and ceaseless prayer...

  7. I so hope that this is the last chemo treatment Logan has to endure. I really hope that he will be in remission. You are due some good news!
