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.

Who, Me?

Another day, another dollar. Not really. Just couldn't come up with anything clever to write.

As of this evening when I left CHO, Logan was breathing well on the BIPAP machine. The neuro team decided to replace his shunt after all --they'd previously decided against it since the pressure in his brain remained low while his drain was clamped over the weekend, but the PICU doc thought it might be a good move and Dr. S said okay. So that'll happen at some point tomorrow. Otherwise, that's about it. He had a flurry of visitors, including a classmate's dad, our pastor and a church member, and the director of the preschool. All good people and I'm glad they stopped in, even if Logan didn't really know they were there.

I can be blunt sometimes, I know. But I don't want anyone to misinterpret my need to disseminate information as me giving up in any way, shape or form. Because we're most definitely not. This is a bump in the road --and a really, really big one at that-- but it's a bump nonetheless. And we continue to say Get Behind Us, Satan. My faith may be grievously imperfect, but God's faithfulness fills in the gaps. That's Good News.


  1. AMEN! We continue our prayers for miraculous healing of Logan's little body. Thank you for keeping us up to date with more specific prayer requests for each of you. May the sunrise bring new hope!

  2. Amen. We're still praying for him. Nonstop.

    I just read Psalm 119:114. It says, "you are a hiding place and my shield. I wait for your word."

    Hold to that. Hide in God and use him as your shield against evil.

  3. prayers said daily for Logan. May God comfort him and shield him.

  4. Sherry, you are such a warrior. Battles are being fought in the Heavenlies for your precious Logan...been praying Psalm 91 over your son...May God bless you and your family always.

  5. Reading, meditating, praying psalm 41 this afternoon. One verse gave me a really great visual, verse 3: "The Lord nurses them when they are sick and restores them to health." I went to biblegateway.com and was reading the psalm in several different versions to get even more depth to it. This helped a lot to hone in on the meaning of God's words in relation to sweet Logan today.
    Lots of love and hugs to you guys.

  6. "I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!" Psalm 27:13

  7. This is good news that the pressure on Logan's brain was able to stabilize over the weekend. Satan had no chance with the prayer warriors praying for Logan!
