On April 1, Bryan was diagnosed with Stage 4 kidney cancer. Unfortunately by the time he was diagnosed it had already spread to his lymph nodes, spine, and ribs and eventually lungs. Exactly 90 days later he lost his battle and went home to be with the Lord. During his very brief but painful battle he never returned home again and never walked again from the day he was diagnosed. He went through two major spinal surgeries as well as several other very invasive procedures. He suffered a 4th degree burn from a MRI as well as multiple infections. The cancer battle was just more than his poor body could take. One of his final wishes was in lieu of flowers donations me made to go towards his two daughters, Brittany and Emily - the apples of his eye.
