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.

Another New Month

This evening, Logan ate 10 Cheerios and drank an entire 4-ounce container of apple juice over a 2 1/2 hour span. Oh, how I wanted to shout it from the rooftops when he finished the last drops of his juice and his straw made that sucking, slurping noise as it attempted to vacuum out the minimal, unslurpable remainders. But that's what life is about these days: Celebrating the ordinary mundane details and recognizing them all as the achievements they truly are. (We just won't focus on the fact that he threw up said cereal and juice a few hours later.)

He had a decent day, but is definitely very, very tired and very, very, very weak. The BMT doc --who happens to be on this week-- told Adam this morning that he was hoping to discharge Logan on Monday. Monday! Of course, he needs to be weaned from the Morphine, off Oxygen completely (he's currently on a 2 litre nasal cannula) and a few other issues need to be addressed, but wow, to think that this entire journey could be nearing a happy end --because after all, Mark 11 is TRUE, people!-- is almost too good to believe.

Unfortunately, Brady is crying and it's much too late for me to be up typing anyway, but I felt compelled to post something. Thank you for praying when I can't. Thank you for lifting up my son and my entire family. Every single person who takes the time to pray for us is a blessing, and we're so deeply grateful for every single one of you.


  1. So glad you were able to celebrate an achievement today! Keeping up my prayers for several more celebrations to come!!

  2. Wonderful to hear Sherry. We will keep praying.

  3. I will be praying for Monday Sherry!!! I am so happy to hear that Logan is doing better. You go right ahead and shout from the roof tops that he finished his juice. This is a very happy moment!!

  4. ::hugs:: YAY!!! I think I'm going to do a little dance now. But shhh!! Don't tell anyone. ;)

  5. That is surely something to celebrate! Praying that Monday IS THE DAY, and that all will be well for him to have a smooth transition home. I bet he cannot WAIT to be home again!! Praying for complete HEALTH!
    Love and hugs to you all.

  6. Oh, I pray that Logan will be able to go home on Monday!! Just being home will help him to heal and get stronger. We're praying for you all here in Michigan!
