Little Man's Brain Tumor Surgery

As most of you know, Little Man had three grand mal seizures about a month ago. We just received the terrifying news that he has been diagnosed with a Glioma (a cancerous brain tumor). Fortunately, Little Man is a candidate for a study at the University of Minnesota that could save his life. While the study is still new, there has been some significant success and it is Little Man's best chance at living a full and healthy life. All of Little Man's medical expenses will be paid for through the study, however, the initial trip to Minnesota combined with three follow up trips throughout the next year will add up to approximately $4,200 in purely gas and hotel expenses. Each trip will cost $450 in gas and approximately $600 in hotels (3-4 day stays in Minnesota). Neither of us are comfortable ever asking people for favors (let alone money), but for anyone that has ever met Little Man or heard us talk about him, we hope you understand the lengths that we are willing to go to keep him happy and healthy for as long as possible. Please feel free to share this among any family or friends. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
