Since my original post over a year ago, David has beat the odds and fought so very hard and battled through brain surgery to remove one of his tumors, along with full brain cyberknife radiation, as well as, daily chemo. Through all of this David has never complained, he just continues to play the cards that are being dealt and presses on. Continuing to be a complete ROCK STAR in my opinion!
However, we are now past the famous "waiting game" of treatments. Yesterday David received his latest MRI results and revealing our biggest fear that once again there are areas of new growth in the brain and was told he was going to be sent home with hospice.
After talking through all the options with the Dr. and medical team at Winship Emory the decision was made that in order to truly fight for any remaining quality of life, he will be the 3rd person to undergo a 2nd round of full brain cyberknife radiation.
Although we know this round of treatment will be a harder road the 2nd time through we still have the hope that his body will react to the treatment in the best and most effective way possible in order to fight against this cancer.
However, we all know life DOES NOT just stop because a loved one gets sick (and by the way I HATE CANCER) the last thing they need to worry with during this time is how they are going to pay the rent; or put food on the table or more importantly how they will pay for the expenses of travel and treatment costs?"
I have decided to restart this fundraiser campaign in hopes to help offset just a little of the day-to-day financial challenges that I know they will be facing as a family. Even if $10.00 is all you can manage to share with them, that's $10 to help get them into Atlanta for treatment and follow-ups
The one thing that we do know is that God is still in the miracle and healing business and our Hope remains in him, once again through this journey.
I know that I have many calloused kneed friends out there that will be praying fervently for his healing and I ask to please pray specifically that God meets every need as they arise. Please know that I along with so many others are so very grateful and completely humbled for every blessing offered up on their behalf during this newly continued journey.
I personally thank you so much from the deepest depths of my heart...
