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.

Thank you all once again for being part of Logan's team. I believe that Jesus heals. I believe that God wants Logan to be well. And for now, it seems that he is.

After an utterly exhausting, terrifying day, the MRI result came back looking stable, which means it looked the same as the one he had 5 weeks ago, and the same as the one he had prior to his BMT cycle. The fellow and doctor on call theorized --even before the MRI, actually-- that the limp could well have been caused by a muscle pull or other injury. A normal 4-year old boy kind of injury. It's almost hard to believe, since we've been denied the privilege of viewing ANY injury of Logan's as 'normal' beginning nearly a year ago. But we'll definitely take it. Anyway, we didn't think to ask if they'd scanned just his spinal column or if the brain had been involved as well, but either way, the spine looking stable over three MRIs is a very good thing.

We are absolutely, immensely grateful for the good news. I know my faith had waned a bit of late. I'd let worry and fear back in. But today served as a good --albeit unwelcome-- reminder that we need to keep our prayer armor on at all times, and not just when things are particularly worrisome.

Have a great Sunday and thank you for reading along and for sharing Logan's story.


  1. Praying at all times sherry! How scary :( So glad to hear that appears to be a "normal" kind of injury...
    We are here, we are praying, and we are thanking God for the reassurances along the way.
    Love you guys.

  2. I'm glad it turned out to be 'nothing'. Not that you should have to endure this type of 'nothing', but just glad it wasn't something more.

  3. Still reading, praying and so glad to hear the good news!
