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.

Back at Home

Yup, Logan's back at home. He was discharged early this afternoon and Adam brought him home. He'll be hooked up to an antibiotic pump for the next several days, but at least he's here. We're thankful for that.

This'll be a brief entry for me; I'm tired after the long week we've had. I mused to Adam on the way to dinner this evening that for some reason, it felt like the week had gone on forever, yet it's only Wednesday. He wasn't surprised at all by the revelation, and pointed out that it felt long because we didn't have a weekend. Well duh, Sherry. Of course that's it.

On to prayer requests. As always, please do continue to pray for complete healing and protection around Logan. Pray that he'll be able to avoid getting sick again; we've definitely been reminded of what a blessing it is to just be at home, and we'd like to avoid additional trips to CHO. Pray also that as preschool begins, Adam and I will make the right choice with regard to sending him. We want him to be around other kids and to learn, but we also need to be mindful of the extra risks inherent in attending school for someone with a compromised immune system.

Thank you for being part of Logan's team.


  1. Will pray for wisdom that you and Adam will know what to do about school for Logan. We're praying much for all of you and especially for God's protection over Logan. So glad to hear that he is home!

  2. I remember...the blessing of being home...as well as wanting to be out and about like normal. I pray that you have wisdom and clarity about what is best for Logan...day to day.

    Heavenly Father, we ask You to protect Logan from all evil, sickness, and harm; and we pray a hedge of protection around him that nothing can penetrate. We plead the blood of Jesus over him and his family, their property, home, cars, and everything that concerns them. We thank You for the angels that You have given charge over them. We ask You to fill them up to overflowing with peace and joy. Thank You for supplying all of their needs according to Your riches in glory - and that they lack nothing in Christ Jesus - and it's in His name we pray, Amen.
