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 to CHO

Well, Logan's fever spiked this afternoon, so Adam took him back to CHO shortly after he got home from work. It hovered around the 100-degree mark all day long, and then rather abruptly jumped to 101.4, which is half a degree above the 'must come in' temp. He'll be checking in tonight, have a STAT CBC to check his numbers and make sure his WBC is doing what it's supposed to do, draw some blood cultures, start a broad-spectrum antibiotic and then... wait.

I'm really furious over this. More than angry. I feel let down, disappointed, betrayed. This Sunday will be one year since his eye turned inward at dinner and life changed forever. The thought that he might not be here and healthy to commemorate the date is an insult to my sensibilities.

If you feel so inclined, please pray for him. I'm angry with God. Very, very angry. So I can't really do much on my own, but I can ask all of you who *aren't* angry to intercede for Logan. I'm just too ticked off to do it myself. Thank you.


  1. I'm sorry, Sherry. I hope that whatever is bugging him can be remedied quickly and with minimal discomfort.


  2. I don't have a lot of faith in God either, but I do have faith in mothers like you. As I lay down tonight my thoughts will be of Logan.
