After shock and many opinions, the tumor was successfully removed in February at UCSF and was confirmed to be Grade III Ependymoma. After surgery recovery, we headed to Houston for Brent to get proton radiation therapy.
We of course have insurance but unfortunately that doesn't cover the costs of accommodation, transport, food, etc. San Francisco and Houston are both far from home and an infant in the mix makes it all a bit harder and expensive.
We know it isn't easy times for anyone but every little bit will help to keep us afloat and focused on medical care rather than the bank account. Unfortunately, there are very limited assistance options for cancer patients in our age range so we are reaching out to all of you.
Thank you to all who read our story and those who give. We will be sure to pay it forward when we can and can't wait to get back to normal life with our chickens and gardens when this is over.
