Let’s start by telling you a little bit about Brian as a person. Brian is kind, funny, caring, and positive person and an inspiration to anyone that has the pleasure of knowing him. He has a wife, three beautiful children that he adores and a dog.
Brian was diagnosed with appendix cancer a little over five years ago when his appendix suddenly burst. Due to his appendix bursting the cancer spread to his peritoneum. The peritoneum is a lining on the inside of the abdomen and on the outside of organs like the intestines and liver. Since then he has had to endure numerous surgeries, two HIPEC surgeries (heated chemo bath that is delivered to your abdomen and soaks for up to 14 hours while patient is cut open) and 74 rounds of chemotherapy.
Not only does this amazing person not complain, he always manages to go to work, help his kids with homework and attend all three of his kid’s soccer games. Traveling soccer entails up to 8 games a weekend in different parts of the state and out of state and it is something that he loves to do… spending time with his family.
With everything Brian is going through he always makes everyone around him a priority. If he knows you need help with something, he is the first person to jump in and offer help. He is the most inspiring person you could ever meet, and has truly earned his nickname, Superman!
The medical bills Brian has had throughout these past 5 years are crazy. Nobody going through this should even have to think about that while fighting for his life. We are all hoping and praying for a miracle to eradicate the cancer. Please help reduce some of the burden on this wonderful family that is in this most unfortunate of circumstances.
