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.

Prayers Needed Please

I posted last night about Logan's temperature hovering near the 100 degree mark, but curiously, the entry didn't post to my Facebook page so I'm sure plenty of you missed it. Anyway, he was fine much of the day, but late this afternoon he took a nap. When he awoke, he complained --cried, really-- that his tummy hurt him. He continued complaining and trying to go to sleep for a few hours. When we took his temperature, it registered just over 100, so Adam called CHO. The resident wasn't terribly concerned over the temperature; she said to call back if it registers 38.5c once, or 38.2 twice. She suggested heat for his tummy, which he's been crying hurts him, so we set him up with a heating pad. I don't know what it is that's bothering him; we think it may be gas pain, given where he points when we ask him where it hurts, but of course we don't know.

It's so crushing to me to hear him cry out in pain, and it's infuriating that we don't know why he's hurting. The whole thing just makes me so angry. Hasn't he endured enough? Hasn't he? It's what I cry out to God.

Please pray that whatever it is that's hurting him will be healed. I may be upset with God --and believe me, I most certainly am-- but I don't question that He can heal all with a single fleeting thought. Thank you.


  1. Praying Logan's stomach pain will subside and his temp will return to normal. He has endured way too much and so have you, Sherry!

  2. I'm so sorry. We've been having tummy pains with fevers the last couple days here, too. Of what I can tell, I think you're right in guessing that it's gas pain. Praying for relief for your precious little one!! Praying for relief for you, too.
