Six years ago after suffering from a seizure it was discovered Craig had a brain tumor. He fought that tumor, had it removed and won. Five years later a routine check up revealed the cancer came back. The cancer is called Anaplastic grade 3 Oligodendroglioma, quite the mouthful, grade 3 means it's cancerous and grows quickly.
Craig's wife Rebecca posted the following on Facebook 11/20/20:
"Craig’s latest MRI scans show that his brain tumor has expanded more in the past couple of months. It’s branching out and extending into the left side of his brain. The best way I can explain is that it looks like a fat Hamburger Helper glove that has continually gotten bigger over the past year, despite 10+ rounds of several different aggressive chemo treatments. The next suggested step is radiation, which always has risks but especially for the brain and especially doing it a second time in his lifespan. After weighing all the pros and cons, getting several expert opinions, and praying constantly... we’ve decided to give it a shot. His kids need him, I need him, his family needs him, we all need him to keep fighting for his life as long and as hard as he possibly can."
The cause of this cancer is unknown. It is not Craig's fault he and his family have this trial in life. All the more reason why it's not fair and so many of us feel such heart ache for their sweet little family.
The point of this fund is to hopefully relieve some stress and show Craig and Rebecca how much we love them. The funds are to be used how ever Craig and Rebecca see fit. That could be for medical bills, to set money aside for the kids college, pay off debt, go on a nice vacation, you get the idea. Thank you for your donation.
