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.

Do You Bake? Does Your Mom Bake? Your Dog?

Okay, so I guess your dog probably doesn't bake.

I cannot believe I've yet to post about this until now, but here goes.

My friend Kathy, who lives all the way down in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, is hosting a very special event on October 13. She's named it the Team Logan Bake Sale, and is hoping to break the Guinness Record for largest bake sale ever. Created under the Cookies for Kids' Cancer umbrella, the proceeds from the sale will go to children's cancer research.

The effort means a lot to me, because the "Logan" in "Team Logan" is none other than my sweet boy.

If you're a local to that area and can help out in person, contact Kathy. If you're not local, that's ok: You can still bake something sweet (or savory!) and mail it to Kathy for the sale. We're getting down to the wire, and I know she still needs help, especially if you have a special talent with gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free and other specialty items. But really: ANY kind of treat would be appreciated. And ALL of the proceeds go toward helping kids like Logan who are still fighting their cancer battles.

Thanks so much for thinking about helping with this event. I can't really express fully how it feels to have something I can do to help. Even if I can no longer help Logan, it heartens me to think that efforts like this one could one day stamp out childhood cancer.
