Tougher Than Cancer- Stronger Together


38081942_1554073128589897_r.jpegHello, this fundraiser is for medical expenses for my brother Josh Allen. We have kept many things going on private and off social media, but the time has come to ask for love, prayers, and support.  In January, Josh started seizing and was taken to a hospital where a brain tumor was discovered. He underwent a successful surgery on February 28th to remove as much of the tumor as possible. Josh was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer. Now, he is facing a need for multiple radiation treatments and chemo to treat cancer and prevent tumor regrowth. Josh has been unable to work or drive since January. His wife Ashley was forced to take an unpaid leave of absence for 30 days from work because she is newer nurse at her company, ineligible for FMLA and had little vacation/sick time. This has left them both without income. 

Currently, Josh is undergoing physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Josh is strong and will beat this. Even though a very large portion of his brain was removed, he is doing exceptionally well after surgery. Soon, Josh will begin radiation therapy daily for 6 weeks. We are confident he will beat this and be back to his everyday life as soon as possible.  Please support Josh in his fight.38081942_1554073164228391_r.jpeg
