Benjamin is in dire need of your support in fighting a cancerous tumor attached to his brain stem.   For most recent updates please visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/fight4benjamin/



----------------------*** Update - 9.13.2016 : To my wonderful sister thank you, Rachelle, for your getting the gofundme started for Benjamin.
 -- Your Brother Joe
----------------------

My nephew Benjamin is only three year old. He was rushed to the hospital three weeks ago after fighting bad side effects from a virus he contracted a week before Thanksgiving. He was unable to retain any food or drink. As a result his body was starving, throwing up blood and acid, and his stomach developed Gastritis ulcers.  After a close to two weeks in intensive care he received an MRI and results showed that there was more to the story.  Benjamin had a brain tumor.   Approximately a ten hour surgery removed the tumor, after which it was sent off for testing. Results came back positive for cancer.

Benjamin's little body is fighting hard and although he may be a small person he is a big personality and a big life! My brother and his wife are parents of six and Benjamin is the baby. This has been very tough on them all. I am asking for your assistance in this season of love and giving, to help my brother and his family with the weeks of hospital stay, the surgery, treatments, etc. I am surprising my brother with this site and I know he will appreciate any support and motivation.

Unfortunately, Benjamin will not be able to spend Christmas at home with his brothers and sisters who miss him so much, but your prayers and support will help bring Christmas to him and more hope to my brother and his family every day.

Thank you for your love. Merry Christmas and God's blessings you all!!

The best place for full updates is direct phone or email but time constraints do not always allow. Although please keep in mind, these social media updates may not be very complete either (and sometimes intentionally) but the 2nd best place for the most recent updates about Benjamin is his Facebook page
https://www.facebook.com/groups/fight4benjamin/
it is a public page to view so you do not need a Facebook account of your own unless you want to say something to it. Also, I hope everyone checks there emails for the personal thank you responses I have sent to each donor. Your donations have truly helped Benjamin immensely. Please continue to share and reach as many people as you know, PLEASE, thank you. We are still in desperate need of funding. I can say from all of us, Benjamin and his family thank you for all of your efforts assisting in getting us this far. Every bit has made a difference when we thought we had nothing left.

Still fighting....
So sorry I do not update this site as often as I probably should for those who may follow it solely. Please consider following the open to the public facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/fight4benjamin/ whether you have an account or not you should be able to view updates, unless anything changes, in which case I would let you know.

I want to say, thank you again all of you who have donated and who are offering all forms of support. I hope all of you have received the thank you replies in your emails. I have not chosen the generic facebook thank you reply as it seemed inappropriate by itself. I may however begin conveying additional, thank yous via the generic link for ensuring they are seen. We are so grateful for all of your involvement, thank you, thank you, thank you.

We are still in a lot of trouble and have not quit fighting...so please keep up spreading the word, donating when if you can and always praying for miracles.
