This is my Dear Husband, Kevin Monsell! My name is Cathy and we've been married for nearly 23 years. Kevin was in a very serious car accident on November 22, 2017...the night before Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, Kevin's car was totaled, but really didn't sustain any visible injuries. However, after the hospital gave Kevin a CAT scan to check for a concussion...they found a brain tumor! Kevin's brain tumor is large (the size of a plum) very deep in the right hemisphere of his brain in the thalmus....and it's inoperable. Kevin is unable to work, drive or do anything that he did that was considered "normal," since the accident. We really need help from Kevin's Dear Friends, his Theater Friends, Co-workers and his Facebook Family for things that our medical insurance does not provide....that he needs. We wish we could do everything all by ourselves, but it just isn't possible, because I have been disabled physically for 17 years and counting. and Kevin took care of all of my needs and everything else we needed. Kevin is unsteady on his feet, and he has serious vision impairment due to the brain tumor. He starts radiation and chemotherapy on January 11, 2018, but Kevin's Neo-Oncologist at Sloan-Kettering in Commack, NY told us that this tumor is "life-limiting!" Even with treatment! Dr. Andrew Lin, told us that he has 15 months to live! We definitely don't want to believe that, but we were told that it's probable. The doctor said that 50% of people who have this kind of tumor can do better with treatment and that 50% do worse even with treatment, but that this cancer cannot be destroyed or cured! As you might imagine, this has turned our world and lives upside down and shaken up like a half-broken snow globe! We hate to ask you for financial help, but under these circumstances, Kevin and I don't really have a choice. Anything that you can do will be a tremendous help! With hugs, love and many many thanks! Kevin & Cathy

Kevin Monsell had his shave and a haircut!!! Which picture do you like best???

I love them both!❤️

Tomorrow, on 7/3...
is Sloan-Kettering day.
Kevin’s MRI comes first, next labs, then follow up with Dr. Lin, ending with a 30 minute chemo Avastin infusion.

I hope we get good news on the MRI! We should have some sort of results by the time we see Dr. Lin.

I’ll keep you all informed!

Love,
Cathy

Kevin hates facial hair but he can't shave with a razor because of the 2 chemo medications he's on, and can't risk cutting himself.
The electric razors we've tried don't work very
well, unfortunately.
Kevin's hair is finally growing back in and I want to get him a haircut to make him look and feel better about himself.
