Brody is our two year old little boy from the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky area battling an extremely rare brain and spine cancer. ETMR (Embryonal Tumor with Multilayered Rosettes). Brody has a tumor wrapped around his brain stem, two in the lower part of the brain and one in his lower spine. Up until May 5 of this year he was a very normal, active little boy. When he developed some dizzyness we took him to the doctor. We got the news no parent can ever be prepared for. Our son has Brain Cancer. Since his diagnosis Brody has been at Childrens Hospital Cincinnati and is expected to remain there for the next 7 months at a minimum, while the amazing staff administeres what has been described to us as the most aggressive treatment plan that have to heal Brody. TEAM BRODY has been created for Brody to encourage support and prayer, but also to create awareness for this precious little life. These next few months are critical for his survival. Our hope is that though TEAM BRODY awareness will be raised for his illness and our humble request for prayer. The staff at Cincinnati Children's Hospital is amazing. But I believe God will carry him through. Thank you for your support. Sencerly, the Allen Family.

Good morning. As many of you already know Brodys cancer treatments have failed. The doctors at Cincinnati Children's have been amazing but due to the aggressive nature of the cancer, they have exhausted all ability to stop the growth. They have told us Brody has only 2 months to live. We have chosen to take Brody home to spend his finally days surrounded by everything and everyone that brings him the most joy.
We knew that Brodys cancer was rare and his he had an incredible fight ahead. We thought we where doing well. Honestly we thought that if he was going to loose that fight we would have so much more time.
As a father I'm embarrassed at how unprepared we are for what comes next.
If you are able to help in any way, we would be incredialbly greatful. If not it's ok. Please instead just pray for Brody and us. For that, we would be immeasurably greatful. We will continue to post updates but I want them to be of his life and the sheer joy that Brody brings to us all. As parents we instinctly know our children are special. They are sent by God as a blessing to us as parents. We start out thinking of all the things we have do to prepare them for life. How much we have to teach them. Brody is special beyond words. In reflection it's our children that teach us the most about life. They mature us and help us to become adults in ways we could never imagine.
Being married to Shilo and being a father to our children is the greatest joy of my life. Brody is special. So our other children. Please pray for Corey, McKenzie, Andrew, Alex, and Bailey. Most of all please pray for Shilo. No mother should ever have to bare this. But she does and has through everything with indescribable grace and love. As only mothers can.
Thank you for any help you can provide. But please share this so that as many people as possible are praying for Brody and our family.. Thank you and God bless you and your family. Todd.
