I just got some checks from a couple of friends and I don't know if I'm saying thank you enough. You guys make it possible for Dara to stay home and take care of me. She pays the bills and keeps track of Doctor appointments, prescriptions, cooks, cleans, takes care of Trin and our dog, drives and stays in the hospital with me and sleeps beside me on a chair. She couldn't do all of that without you guys doing the fund raising. We are so grateful for you all that write and come up with fund raising ideas, it breaks us into tears. I don't have any good news to report, I hope to soon. I'm feeling good today and don't have chemo till Friday. I hope we all have a good week. Love and blessings

Good morning! I hope everyone had...
Good morning! I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season! I apologize for the lack of updates lately. Life has been pretty hectic but I shouldn't let this page fall behind. Right now the Wolfe's are doing pretty good. As Brian had previously mentioned, the Abraxane and Gemzar the doctors had him on stopped working and his counts went up. They now have him on a different cocktail which is a two day infusion and requires two days in the hospital. Brian will be returning at the end of the week for another round. As Brian and Dara prepare for their stay I am asking for prayers and positive thoughts. I know Brian is on your mind all the time but I still like to ask because he is on my mind all the time as well. I also ask for you to pass the donation page on. I would post the link everyday but don't want everyone to feel like I'm begging. ( Even though in a sense I am) I am close to the Wolfe family but I feel helpless. I do everything I can to help but it just doesn't seem like enough. That's one of the reasons I post the donation page and ask prayers. Every thought, prayer, kind word, and penny helps more than you know. Because of you the Wolfe family is hanging in there and for that we are forever grateful.
Much love and peace,

Thank you everyone for the outpour...
Thank you everyone for the outpour of love and support for the Wolfe family! Your kind words and donations are extremely overwhelming. We have created a Facebook page, facebook.com/BrianWolfesFight.

Identical twins Nick and Brian Wolfe grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida and started their epic journey into the world of special effects makeup. They share inborn enthusiasm for art and illusion that has fueled their meteoric rise in the world of faceart, body painting and special effects make-up.They travel the world sharing their ideas, teaching others and helping them accomplish their dreams.
Brian has been married for 12 years to his devoted wife, Dara and they have an 11 year old daughter, Trinity. Both who are his life and biggest supporters.
Just a few days ago, Brian was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has knocked him off his feet and is threatening his life. While Brian undergoes treatment he is unable to work. His wife, who has stood by his side for over a dozen years is needed by his side now more than ever.
We are asking you to help the Wolfe family in any way you can. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated and will be used to help with day to day expenses so Brian can focus on healing and living his dream once again.
We also ask for privacy for the family during this extremely difficult time. As Brian receives his treatment, we will keep you updated on his recovery.
The Wolfe family is so blessed to have such caring family, friends and fans and is extraordinarily grateful for the continued support.
For those who may be wondering, I am Dara's sister and I am close to both her and Brian. Dara and Brian are both aware of this page and the support we are asking for. This page has been a group effort put together by our entire family. We greatly appreciate any help you can offer.

Brian, you and Nick have meant so much to me. Your generosity in sharing your skills and designs have made a huge impact on my life and thousands of others in a way that we cannot repay. I have had the pleasure of taking several of your classes throughout the years and each time I have walked away a better artist. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family everyday! Love you and God bless you!

WOLFE brothers... you may remember back in 2010 when you were in the UK and a fellow photographer that is friends with Paul and Juliet at Facade... You both now hang on my wall as it is a constant reminder that you are full of talent and life. That is how it should be around the world for inspiration. Not matter how tough it may get, keep those endorphins going and be a 'big kid' as much as you can. Because if your spirit is laughing inside then you can laugh this moment of your life right out and tell it to P*&$ off! I am wishing you all the best guys! Natasha x

Brian-- My mom always told me stories about your awesome make up with every year she went to Transworld. I finally got to see you this year, and it was a pleasure to have you do my makeup for the haunted house i was participating in that night. I just wanted to say one thing: Through your steps, i will support you. I send all of my good energy your way and hope that you fight valiantly against this... Because many of us wish to see you healthy, on your feet, and doing makeup yet again! Good luck to you. From, A big fan. =3

Wow, this is such a sneaky disease! My family has personal experience with pancreatic cancer and my brother Brian Green is currently the Tampa Bay Event Coordinator Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCan). There is a walkathon called the PurpleStride in November he is working now. PanCan is an amazing organization and filled with lots of support for those with pancreatic cancer and their families. My brother is actually a "friend" of yours on Facebook because I was showing him the amazing work you and Nick do. Look him up and he'd be happy to talk to you! Stay strong and you'll be in my thoughts and prayers!!!!
