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.

R.O.L.A.I.D.S.!

I'm a virtual fount of emotion right now, but the dominant one is joy! After a largely torturous day of waiting, a delay in Logan's MRI and then a lapse in communication between me (at home) and Adam (at CHO), we finally got a preliminary read not long ago.

Both Dr. T and Philippa met Adam in the recovery room right after Logan had been wheeled in. Dr. T said that he saw nothing growing, and that the scan showed inflammation of the 7th (which controls the facial function) and 8th (which control hearing) nerves. He's not sure what's causing the inflammation, but said that it could be either viral, or an obscure side effect of one of the drugs Logan is on. He planned to do some more research to figure out if one of the medications might be the culprit.

I cannot tell you how relieved we are. I have many, many thoughts on the subject of healing and our role in making it come to pass, but I'm signing off for now with a simple Thank You, Jesus. <3
