“No marathon gets easier later. The halfway point only marks the end of a new beginning.” Joe Henderson
Everyone knows that Brandon is in the fight of his life. Unfortunately the months of intense chemo therapy have not worked. Anyone that knows Brandon knows that he is a man of faith, strength, and perseverance. He will not back down from this fight and neither will his family.
As a family we have weighed many options to fight this terrible cancer. This marathon, which we did not choose to run, has been difficult spiritually, physically, and financially. However, we will not quit!!!!
After looking at many treatment options we have chosen to use a treatment center in Clearwater, Florida. Brandon will be undergoing therapies in an attempt to boost his immune system. He also faces some additional chemo therapy that we hope will destroy the cancer. Unfortunately insurance will not cover all of the cost associated with the treatment.
It is ironic that as sick as Brandon is our strength as a family comes from him. This is our second half of the marathon.
Brandon and the family are so thankful for the outpouring of love and support that has been given. The prayers, visits, meals, and financial support that has been given to us has brought us to tears and gotten us through the first part of this marathon. As Brandon’s sister it has left me speechless to see how much my brother is loved by others. He is not only my brother but a husband, father, son, and friend to all.
The cost of this treatment is high but so are the potential rewards. Insurance deductibles and expenses from Brandon’s prior treatments have depleted the majority of prior donations. In addition Becky has taken a leave of absence from her teaching position to take care of Brandon.
We want to thank all of you in advance for your continuing and additional support.

As Brandon always says “Finish the Race”!!!!
