Shelley Verkist's Fundraiser:

Running the Seattle Half for Hans

THE STORY:

Hans was a busy, happy, sweet and fearless three year old when he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. He fought this disease like a gladiator for 6 years. He went through a lot of treatment in his young life, but he always powered through it. His attitude was, "Let's get this done!" On September 21, 2012, at age 9, beautiful Hans transformed into an angel, at home in the loving arms of his amazing parents, Kevin and Lara, and his wonderful big sister, Ellie. His little body put up a better fight than it ever should have had to, and now it is restored to perfect health and beauty. His blond afro is flying is the breeze. He is running wild and free.

The Children's Neuroblastoma Cander Foundation (CNCF) makes grants to clinical trials that haven’t been funded through government funding or pharmaceutical companies. Sadly, research for pediatric cancer is shockingly underfunded. This organization supports studies that helped give the Weberling family 9 years with Hans. If only it could have been more. You can read Hans' blog at hansjourney.blogspot.com for more information.
