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.

Go to WAR for Logan, Please!

The culture of Logan's ear fluid grew something this morning: Aspergillus. It's pretty much the absolute worst thing that could've shown up. It's a fungus that is extraordinarily dangerous to immunocompromised people like Logan. He's been put on a strong anti-fungal IV antibiotic, and will be on it for some time into the future. The plan is to do a full-body CT on Monday to see if the fungus has taken root elsewhere. ENT will also likely go into his mastoid bone and try to clean out as much of the infection as possible.

I don't say this lightly: I am scared to death. Absolutely terrified. If it responds well to the anti-fungal, he will eventually be okay. If it doesn't, there's really nothing else that can be done. Aspergillus in the lungs has an extremely high mortality rate. Given that he's had a chronic cough for months now, I'm beyond terrified. He didn't beat cancer to have this happen.

Please, I am absolutely imploring you to pray for Logan, and to pass it on. If you can think of anyone else to share this with, PLEASE do. Imagine for a moment that it's YOUR child or grandson or nephew or best friend's son. I'm asking for NOTHING but continuous, fervent prayers for Logan's health and healing.

  5. So very sorry about this horrible infection. I will be praying more than ever!
    Praying for Logan, Brady and all of your family.

  6. Declaring that fungus has no power over Logan and commanding it to GO in the name of Jesus! Praying for supernatural wisdom for the medical team and for a miraculous healing to come forth in Logan.

    Blessings - and peace...peace to that fear. God loves you and Logan - praying for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done on this earth as it is in Heaven - and we know there is no sickness, pain, or fear there!! There is trouble in this world, but Jesus our Savior and Healer overcame it - and Logan is healed by His stripes. : )

  7. Praying, praying, praying.
    I'm going to post this link to my fb account so others that haven't checked in in a while will know it is an extremely urgent time for prayer over Logan, and over you guys.
    I wish there was more I could do Sherry. I feel just awful that this continues to happen. Lifting you UP!!!

  8. Praying that Logan would respond quickly to the medication and that you would feel peace in the midst of this.
