The Bryce Hanson Fund For Hope

In the middle of December 2017, Bryce went out to clear the driveway with the snowblower. A past time he would typically enjoy to do in the winter. This time was different, a couple days later Bryce was complaining of back pain and inside thigh pain. The usual remedies were used to try ease the pain, but nothing seemed to help. Multiple trips back and forth to the local doctor, different prescriptions, and tests. They had found fluid in the lungs, but no let up on the pain.

Difficulty walking, increased pain, and shortness of breath led us to the E.R. one Saturday night. After many more tests, Bryce’s blood pressure was 185/118, they were unable to get it down after many attempts. His oxygen levels were low. During this time they found a spot on his lung and liver. They then decided to transfer us to Grand Forks.

While in Grand Forks, he experienced a decrease in appetite and increases in pain, anxiety, and high blood pressure. After a long time of waiting, restless nights, and tests we were informed that he has been diagnosed with a fast moving cancer (lung that spread to liver). Another day passed and he was diagnosed with another (bone).  After being in the hospital for a week, he got discharged. We spent a few days at home before leaving to Duluth to start the treatment process at St. Mary’s. By this time it was the end of January.

He is currently on multiple medications, chemotherapy, and radiation. If you could support Bryce in any way, we would greatly appreciate it! Thank you for your contributions and support during this difficult time. To help get the word out, please share this GoFundMe with your social network.

Thank you to everyone!!
