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.

Tuesday A.M.

Because I'm horribly uninspiring these days, I'll just copy and paste the update Adam sent me following the morning rounds:

Nothing really new. They're going to stop some of the antibiotics. And the lasicks will be every eight hours again instead of every six. Doctor Torkildson [Logan's primary oncologist and the on-call doc this week] thinks that as the vod gets resolved the fluid in his lungs will be absorbed and he won't need the oxygen anymore. Everyone agrees that he looks much better and said they were glad to have him back on the floor. Dr. T said that he was very impressed.

So prayers of thanksgiving for all of that and a big thank you to all of you for joining us. But please don't stop: We're still on the road to healing and Logan needs you. :)

I have a screaming Brady to contend with, but wanted to share that with you all this morning. Have a lovely day.


  1. Thank you for the update even though you didn't feel like writing. You guys are always on my heart and in my prayers. Praying for complete healing and wholeness!

  2. Oh, I'm so glad! I've been thinking about Logan the entire time these past few days. Hoping it's all uphill from now on!

  3. Thank you for the update!! David and I spent some time together praying for you all last night, and I re-reminded my Bible Study ladies to keep praying this morning, too! Love and prayers!

  4. Yay! A tad bit of "better" news :) Still Praying!!!

  5. Still Praying. Glad to hear that things are going in the right direction.
