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 time passes, the frequency of my updates is directly tied to my relative tiredness; the more drained I am, the less often I write. I should work harder to change that. After all, when you're more tired you need more support, so disappearing doesn't help me, does it?

Anyway, Logan is doing markedly better. His numbers are doing what they're supposed to do, and his weight is stable. He's down from 15 to 9 liters of oxygen, and his repirations and saturation have remained good. He needs to begin eating and drinking again, though. I did convince him to eat 4 Cheerios (yes, four tiny circular bits of cereal) and about an ounce of apple juice this evening, so that's something. He hasn't eaten anything at all for nearly a month, so it's a step in the right direction.

He's gaining a bit more energy, too; Adam said he's enjoyed playing with the Physical Therapist in the mornings and that he even laughed a little today. That's a bittersweet statement; how often do we hear our children laugh and fail to recognize what a gift that lyrical sound truly is? Let me tell you one thing: It's striking to hear it again after a monthlong absence.

I'd keep writing, but I truly am just completely wiped out and I need to get some sleep before Brady wakes up. Thank you for continuing to pray for Logan's healing, the health and happiness of the rest of our family, and for wisdom for every medical professional we encounter. Blessings to you.


  1. ::hugs:: We keep praying, even when you're silent. We love you all.

  2. Yay, glad to hear an update :) I figure when there are a few days between updates that it is undoubtedly due to lack of time or energy, and no one can blame that! :)
    Praying without cease for Logan and for your whole family. It's good to hear of some improvement, still praying for improvement by leaps and bounds, and ultimately for total healing.
    Love and hugs to each and every one of you.

  3. So glad he is laughing again. That is truly one of my favorite sounds and I feel so badly when I have to squash my children's laughter because it is annoying others! Continuing to pray, pray, pray!

  4. Markedly better makes me smile. I hope and pray it continues, Sherry.
