Many people expressed a desire to help financially, so we thought this would be a more direct way. Anthony is now battling a recurrent mixed germ cell. This started as two brain tumors, which responded very well to chemo. But it has now returned in the spinal area and treatment has to begin again. If we stay on the current path, it will involve more chemo, radiation and a stem cell transplant. (Transplant will be completed in Salt Lake City, UT.) We still have medical bills due. Cindy and I have been and will continue to miss work often. We have constant travel to Boise from Middleton area. With the transplant in Utah Cindy or I can be there up to 100 days. I know we will drive to Utah multiple times to visit. Anthony's prescriptions can run up to $100 a month. If I change shifts at work I will have to take a pay cut. Many of you have all ready been so much help. I don't know how specific 10k is. It's hard to know what expenses we will incur. If you would like to know more about Anthony this link has a video and article talking about him. The local news did a story on him a month after diagnosis: http://www.ktvb.com/home/7s-HERO--230447121.html
