Tipping Our Hat To You Brian
After going to the ER with what he thought was the flu, Brian was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Melanoma. Brian did not have health insured at the time and he was refused treatment by Northwestern Hospital. Via the Affordable Care Act, Brian purchased health insurance immediately after his diagnosis and was recently notified that Blue Cross Blue Shield will now not cover any of his much needed treatments. Brian has been to several hospitals and each have refused to treat him without insurance. Meanwhile, Brian is in constant pain. He is also now faced with the burden of not being able work and the stress that presents to his personal finances and daily life. Paying for expensive medication and treatment is not something anyone really prepares for.
Brian’s cancer has now spread to his L2 lower back vertebrae, T4 right rib, left axilla lympnode, left lymphnode above clavicle, right lung node, and spine. The cancer is spreading fast and time is crucial! In order to fight it we must find him help fast!
Our team at the Grillroom is a family and we are hoping to raise enough money to get Brian treated immediately. We love him dearly and none of us are prepared to lose him.
Please join us in helping Brian through the only way we possibly can, financially..
To meet our dear friend you can also see him on Channel 7 News, and hear more about his story! You truly want to meet this young man, he is amazing and touches the lives of everyone he knows and meets!

With that being said. God Bless each of you. And thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know Brian has been overwhelmed with calls and texts so it becomes hard for him to respond at times. But, I want all of you to know how much you have truly touched his life.
Thank you for that!
