Please help our cancer buddy!

Hello our sweet Cami supporters.  Thank you all so much for your support, love and kind comments the last 2 weeks as Cami finished her chemo treatments and we celebrated her long and amazing fight with cancer.

Unfortunately, today cancer veered its ugly head once again and is claiming one of our sweet cancer buddies.   I am writing about this family today because you have all been so wonderful to support our family, I need any of you that are able to please focus your support on this family.

Meet Cheri and Hunter Hansen.  

Cheri is a fellow cancer mom.  Her 9 year old son Hunter was diagnosed with leukemia (AML), he went through treatments, but unfortunately his cancer returned.  He was then told he would need a bone marrow transplant to rid his body of cancer again.  On September 18th 2012, while he was still at Primary Children's Hospital recovering from his transplant, his mother suddenly passed away from a heart attack.  Here is Cheri's obituary (found here):

Cherilyn S. Hansen, “Cheri”, died Tuesday, September 18, 2012 in Salt Lake City, UT.  She was born to John and Dorothy Stanley on April 25, 1975 in Evanston, WY.  She married Phillip Hansen on June 20, 1997 in the Bountiful LDS Temple. 
Cheri loved being outdoors, hunting, fishing, water skiing, and snow skiing.  She enjoyed high school sports.  Most of all she loved being with her boys and being part of a big family.  She was an active member of the LDS Church and held several callings.  She received her Associates Degree from Western Wyoming Community College and substitute taught.
Cheri is survived by her husband Phillip Hansen, her two sons; Phillip Jr., and Hunter Hansen, all of Rock Springs, WY.  She is also survived by her parents, John and Dorothy Stanley, of Rigby, ID; a brother, Curt Stanley, of Rigby, ID; and three sisters, Cathy (Stan) Jones, of Denver, CO; Carrie (Randy) Miller, of Santa Palua, CA; and Cami Mueller, of Evanston, WY.
She was preceded in death by her infant daughter, Shaelyn Dorothy Hansen. 

Here is Hunter's CaringBridge journal entry after his mom passed away:
Bad Week

Written Sep 29, 2012 3:43pm

As if that isn't the family learned that Hunter's cancer is back for a second time and there is nothing more the Doctors can do for him.  They told his father (who also lost a baby girl 12 years ago) to take Hunter back home to Wyoming and make him comfortable while he lives out his last days on earth.  Hunter is old enough to understand what is happening to him and he is still mourning the loss of his beloved mother who he will soon be joining in heaven.  It is just beyond heartbreaking.

Here is Hunter's CaringBridge journal entry from today:

Busy Week

Written 3 hours ago
There is not a lot that can be done for this family, but I am asking each of you to help me send them some love.  I want to flood his home with uplifting cards so he knows that we care. Please make them happy and uplifting. Hunter is nine years old, he loves legos and nerf guns. He also has an 11 year old brother named Buster and his Dad's name is Phil, both Buster and Phil will need some support in the next few weeks as their family will go from 4 members, down to 2 members in a matter of weeks.  

Please send cards, gifts or donations to:

Thank you so much for your help. I cant even imagine what Hunter's father is going through, let alone Hunter himself. My heart is breaking today. Please share this story with others you think might be willing to help.  Lets shower this family with love in their time of need.  Thank you amazing Cami supporters!  We love you guys! XOXO

  1. This is a great post, Chelsea. It is heartbreaking - it is just unbelievable all that their family has gone through. It blows my mind. Are you ok if I copy and paste this to my own blog? It's so well put.

  2. It broke my heart! Poor 'lil guy! My friend died of brain cancer. Hunter, you'll be in my prayers!

    1. They did? Ohhh... Yeah, Hunter! I'll be thinking of you! Good luck and be brave!

  3. sorry to hear. I had a bother past away from it to. I was only five at the time. But i got to know my bother very well. When i was only a year and half old. I was the match to give him a transplant. So my parents went ahead with it. he lived three more years. I wish he was still here today. he would have been 38 if he was still here today. It is hard. But you get thought it. I miss him very much. LOVE you big bother. And for the others you can still talk to them. they well hear you there body may not be there. my hope and prays are with you

  4. My great niece, Millie Flamm, told me about you and your family. You have been very brave. We are praying for all of you.

  5. Thank you for such a great attitude, Hunter! You sound like an amazing guy! Bless you!

  6. Sherry told me about your beautiful tribute. It really is lovely.

  7. You don't know me but I heard about this through a coworker at JetBlue who has a child who knows Hunter from time spent at Primary Childrens. My husband travels to Rock Springs every week and I would like to put together a care package to send. I know that this family is dealing with a lot and having a stranger show up at their door would likely not be appreciated. If there is any way that you could email me I would like to try to find out if there is a neighbor or family friend that could meet my husband in Rock Springs next week to take some items to Hunter and his Dad and Brother. My name is Tracey, my email is Thank you!

  8. This post was heartbreaking. I'll be praying for you, Hunter. Good luck!

  9. :'( This is heartbreaking. Mu friend died last week from a rare type of cancer. She was only 10 :( Hunter god bless you and know that theres people who are going to pray for you. <3

  10. Adding fiber to your diet is one way to break through a plateau. Fresh vegetables are a great source of additional fiber for your diet, and eating more of these foods instead of less food will help you lose the final 20 pounds. Thanks.

  11. Thank you for the post and giving us the opportunity to do something for this family in need. You are a wonderfully thoughtful family!

  12. Cancer can be detected in a number of ways, including the presence of certain signs and symptoms, screening tests, or medical imaging. Once a possible cancer is detected it is diagnosed by microscopic examination of a tissue sample. Cancer is usually treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. Thanks.

  13. Cami is just one amazing girl. I am only 11 and i just love her. I wish she was my neighbor. On animal jam her den is amazing.

  14. I want to share a testimony on how a spell caster cured my Mom from her breast cancer, she had breast cancer, and it was discovered when she had pains in her breast. The doctor advised her to take a surgery on her, so that he can mutilate the breast, my mom refused. I saw a testimony on how Dr. Oraede cured someone’s brain cancer. Quickly I emailed him, I filled his temple form, he asked for my Mom’s Full name, Age, Picture and how long she had the cancer, I told him everything he needs to know. He told me that in casting the spell, his god’s require some items in which he will use in preparing a cure for my mom, he sent me the items list, and there’s no way I can get these items, he told me that the only alternative is for me to send down the money so that he can buy the items in their local market, from the items sellers, I sent him the money, he bought the items and prepared a cure for my mom and he sent it through Courier Delivery Service, I received the parcel, it was a portion, he asked my mom to rub it at the affected part, which she did and she was cured from her cancer disease, I am so happy, if not for Dr. Oraede my mom would have been dead or the both breast mutilated. Contact him now and get your healing from him or you can call his mobile phone number @ +234816187948.
