Hold onto Hope With David

Each and every day we hold onto hope.
In March 2013 we found out that David had a mass in his brain. After surgery and a lot of anxious waiting, David was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiforme; brain cancer. This is the most aggressive form of brain cancer. Through the discovery of the tumor and surgery, we held onto hope. Through radiation and chemotherapy, we held onto hope. David has had a lot of setbacks and a lot of victories since March. We tackle each set back with positivity and we celebrate each victory with joy. Recently, his needs have increased. David will be coming home from Brain Rehabilitation at the end of September. Due to his increased needs, a handicapped bathroom will need to be built in the downstairs of his home. Home health care and therapy are covered by insurance for a short time, but not for long term. The financial burden of cancer is a great one, especially when the cancer prevents you from working. At the age of 55, with a wife, three married children, three beautiful grandchildren (and another on the way), and family and friends, David has so much to live for. Please consider donating, even one dollar can make a difference.
