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.

Send Help... A Note for the Prayer Warriors

After the events of today, I have to assume that it's game-on time once again for Logan's prayer warriors. First there was the pic line getting kinked and needing to be removed, which necessitated an unscheduled trip to CHO. Then there was the whole peeing in the pants incident that scared me to pieces. When we got home from CHO, I retrieved the deck of healing verses a friend sent to me, and prayed them over my sweet boy. Just a few hours later at 4:45, I started to feel some prickling sensations in my right ear. By 5, I knew it was infected. I was fortunate enough to get an after-hours appointment with my doctor, who confirmed that my eardrum was red and bulging (and was duly impressed by how quickly the symptoms appeared to plague me). She gave me three prescriptions to fill -- an antibiotic (which is challenging, since I'm allergic to penicillin and sulfa drugs and I'm nursing Brady), Tylenol with Codeine and numbing ear drops. The pain was so intense that I cried while I drove to the pharmacy and then could hardly sit still while I waited for them to be filled. I had Adam instill the drops as soon as I got back, and popped the other two pills. It's been about 15 minutes now and I'm still waiting for marked relief.

Anyway, I'm taking the opportunity to call all of Logan's true prayer warriors --and you know who you are-- to take up your armor and get to work. I feel like we're again under attack --or at least, I am-- and we all need extra protection. I know that some of the things I say about spiritual battles seem a little odd to some of you, but I know we're in the middle of one, and I must assume that things are progressing in the right direction for my sweet boy if I'm meeting so much resistance.

Thank you for being a part of Logan's team. And stay tuned: I continue to believe that great things are in the works here for my dear Logan, even if the road isn't what I would've chosen for my family.


  1. Oh, Sherry, I hope you feel better soon!!! Hugs and lots of hugs, my dear! I'll leave you with the USC Trojans' slogan of "Fight on!"

  2. More prayers as always; for complete healing, mountains to be moved and constant hope & belief that these things will happen!

  3. I'm here....been praying a lot for you and Logan today and will continue to until this battle is won.

  4. I'm here and have been praying a lot for your whole family. I hope you feel better soon!

  5. Yikes! I hope you're getting some relief.
