Garrett Green  ASHBURN, VA
However we may know Garrett, as dedicated parent or friend; a motivator; a collegue; challenger; worthy competitor; loyal NY Yankees fan.... we all love and know how many people he touches everyday.  
In October, Garrett began to experience irregular symptoms that caused him to seek medical advice.  Unfortunately, the result of that visit quickly landed Garrett and Kelly to Austin to begin a tireless effort towards winning the battle over Small Cell Carcinoma of the Bladder:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3253713/

This type of rare cancer can spread quickly, and with more bad news heard in TX, they found out that it had spread to his shoulder, upper chest, and hip region.

Determined (as we would expect nothing less from Garrett) to be healthy, Garrett and his family are now seeking attention at the Cancer Center of America in Philadelphia. (and he is NOT a Phillies fan!) 

Biweekly treatments of Chemo and Radiation have reduced the pain and growth of the existing tumors, but due to the nature of the cancer - the possibility of new growth is always looming.

As you can imagine, there are significant expenses involved in fighting the fight - both incurred and ongoing.  
TX and PA Medical Bills: $18,000
Prescriptions: $500/monthly
Hotel & travel to/from PA for treatments: $265/day (normal visit is 4 days)

Our #1 Goal: A healthy Cancer Free Garrett
Our #2 Goal: $15,000
Anything you can offer towards helping the Green's continue their fight in getting Garrett 100% Cancer Free is appreciated.

Garrett, and the special ladies in his life: Kelly, Ryan, Tyler, Brooklyn, & Brihanna Thank you all for reading this post and consideration on how you can help!

Unfortunately my cancer has spread again, small cell carcinoma aggressively attacks my bones and the brain. I have small lesions on my brain that we started fighting yesterday with steroids and radiation. I'm on a 10 day cycle
and should have a full recovery minus some fatigue and soreness. With God's well and your support I will over come this setback. I have a goal to come home (Denver) and thank as many people as I can for you support,love and financial help. Until then thanks to everyone for their love and support!!

The cancer that I carry is very aggressive so the likely-hood that it will come back and keep coming back is high. This is something we have prepared for but we didn't anticipate a lack of cooperation from my insurance company. With that being said I'll have to go up to Philly weekly in order to get treatments (not sure how many weeks yet) but this shouldn't interfere with any of our holiday fun unless I get sick from the meds. We all have pets and or kids so what's a Iittle vomit between family and friends? . I feel great and I'm not stressed so please no one else stress. Please keep me and my family in your prayers. Love you all!!

Thanks,
Garrett

My cancer has returned and it's in my liver. I'm getting the best treament (radiation ) from the best team of doctors at the Cancer treatment center of America. I have a few more days here before I can go home and enjoy my family and friends. I ask for your continued support and prayers as I fight this latest set back.

Thank you all

I reflect with joy because God has pulled me through the dark and into the light. I get down on both knees to praise him for the blessings he gives onto my family. I will walk not run in order to witness how he will make today better than yesterday and tomorrow better than the day after!!

I just returned from another chemo treatment and I'm still cancer free. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. My daughters: Ryan, Tyler, Brooklyn, Brihanna and last but NOT least my wife Kelly, they have ALL been rocks every step of the way and I thank them. My extended family: The Masons, Teels, Benfords,Wileys,Morgans, Texas and Maryland clans consistently help me fight off the negative energy that always seems to be around the corner when I'm feeling a little down. So i thank them. Unfortunately the fight is not over, I've just won a few rounds with the support of a great family and too many friends to name but you all know who you are!

I thank you......
