Hans lost his battle with Neuroblastoma on Friday. He was Zachary's best friend, our neighbor for most of his life, and he fought a long and courageous battle with a nasty cancer for nearly six years. I wish I could be in California right now to hug his parents and sister! He is one of the reasons why I chose to be a pediatric nurse, and why I choose to volunteer with the Layla Grace Foundation.
If you feel so inclined, Hans' family is asking for people to donate to the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation, who made some of Hans' treatment possible, here. There are many other children like Hans still fighting, and they need all of the help they can get!
