Brian's Brain Trust

Brian Brawdy-- Whether you call him friend, husband, partner, dad or brother, you know of his truly infectious spirit and his absolute love for the ups and downs that come from confronting Fate fearlessly,  while always living life to its FULLEST.  

He's ALWAYS willing to help people he knows, even those he doesn't. Well, the tables have turned and as he prepares for his 5th invasive brain  surgery in just 2 1/2 years, NOW is our chance to stand with him while he is on a knee.

Please join our group "Brian's Brain Trust," filled with truly amazing people who want to positively support Brian in his ongoing battle against the aftermath of a golf-ball sized brain tumor and myriad side effects of a persistent cerebral spinal fluid leak and swelling at the base of his skull.

The past 2.5 years, Brian has endured 4 brain surgeries, numerous setbacks, significant financial and physical challenges including debilitating headaches, tremors, bouts of Amnesia, difficulties with his vision, hearing and physical balance. All the while, he rises every day, squares his shoulders and continues to battle back, come what may.

With his 5th brain surgery in just a few weeks, he is once again setting his sights on a full recovery, the return to his popular morning radio show  ("with more head scares than most Vikings, I now truly have a face for radio") and his robust circle of friends; most importantly, being a great role model for his 5 children and chasing down his White Lab named Brash. His uphill road to post op recovery will require substantial rest and physical retraining, not to mention a bit of good, old fashion luck.

By making a donation today you’ll be helping him focus on the lengthy mending process ahead and regaining the optimal physical and mental wellbeing we all desire. Your contribution (or even simply sharing the page) will help make that dream a reality for him and his family!

Brian will also be posting health updates and reports to the #BrianBrainTrust private Facebook page!
Thank you so very much for considering joining the #BrianBrainTrust. 

Your support is truly and deeply appreciated.
