Help Travis Fight a Brain Tumor

On December 8, 2017 Travis Ziehl was driving to town from Hoback when he had a seizure, causing his truck to crash into a house. Thanks to Jackson Hole Fire/EMS and other first responders, Travis was taken to St. Johns Medical Center. Once there he had another seizure that prompted them to fly him to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC). Travis spent several days in ICU before being allowed to come home to recover from his injuries. He sustained fractures in his cheek, a compression fracture in his back and a dislocated shoulder along with many bumps/bruises from the accident.  Unfortunately, several weeks post-accident, the medication for controlling the seizures was not working and he continued to experience multiple seizures on a daily basis while at home. On December 30 he went in for another MRI.  It turns out that the cause of his temporal lobe seizures was from a brain tumor.

Travis and Monika traveled to Rochester, MN at the Mayo Clinic to undergo treatment. He has since been diagnosed with Glioblastoma mulitforme, an aggressive brain cancer.  He underwent surgery to remove the tumor in Rochester in January 2018. They then traveled to Phoenix to continue treatment (radiation and chemotherapy). They returned home, to Jackson, WY for the summer and are now back in Phoenix for treatment this winter.  Read more about their journey at 

Thank you for your love and support! The world has changed for them and everyone around them, but they are not alone in this fight. 

This has already caused an undue hardship on Travis and Monika.  The emotional toll is daunting in and of itself, but now it is being compounded by all of the unexpected medical expenses and loss of work.  Travis is the owner of Jackson Hole Property Services and Monika has also had to leave her job to care for him.  

Travis is strong and has a great attitude given all he has been through.  These funds are urgently needed to help take the financial burden off of them, so that they can focus on beating this and healing. Please donate what you can and share this page far and wide!  Thank you for your support!
