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.

With Open Eyes

Not much pleases me more than the times I'm able to view situations with my eyes fully open and my heart fully aware.

As I've quietly worried over the reasons behind Logan's sudden issues with incontinence (which, by the by, appear to be improving since he re-started the higher dose of decadron), I've also tried to hold onto faith. Belief. Hope. Trust. As I again mulled the situation this morning, my mind and soul on the brink of yet another gut-busting worry session, two important memories came to mind. First, I recalled Pastor Mike's words about how evil invades and tries to destroy good works done by God, and how when positive strides are made for the Kingdom, the devil will strike back in some way. And then I remembered the post I made proclaiming that Logan would be healed because God's Word is true and He doesn't lie. And suddenly the recent issues made more sense; it was almost as if the situation came into a sharp focus. I wrote that segment on November 8, and his incontinence issues began in earnest on the 11th. Proclamation of faith despite uncertain circumstances followed by an outwardly frightening strike. Badda-bing, badda-boom.

Tricky, huh? Not. Satan, get behind me. Get behind Logan, get behind my family and friends, and flee from here, in the name of Jesus Christ.

I know I'm losing some of you here, but hang with me. Miracles will happen right here. The path of life --and indeed, Life-- isn't always an easy one, but we'll be singing a victory song here soon.


  1. Amen Sherry!!! Praying on with you!

  2. AMEN!! Praying for good results tomorrow! Keep on believing!

  3. Thank you! This was something I needed to be reminded of also. Always praying!!

  4. Continuing to pray.
    Put on the Armor everyday that you dress and give God the open door to come in and spend the day at your home.
    Satan will flee - he doesn't want to be anywhere near the Divine Guest.
    Lifting Logan up today and everyday :)

  5. These song lyrics came to mind...

    God I look to You,
    I won't be overwhelmed,
    Give me vision,
    to see things like You do.
    God I look to You,
    You're where my help comes from,
    Give me wisdom,
    You know just what to do.
