During the fall and winter months of 2016/2017 Bert was going to routine chemo appointments to treat the tumor and finished up in the spring of 2017 with radiation. The results of the chemo and radiation were very positive and the next step to the process was to remove the remaining tumor the surgeons were not able to recover from the emergency surgery.
On August 8th 2017, Bert went into the University of Minnesota with a very positive attitude. The surgeons at the U of M did a great job and the tumor removal was sucessful. He has been doing great with his recovery and physical therapy at the U of M. He'll finish up his recovery at a TCU and hopefully be at home within the next few weeks. Bert put up a great fight and he could not have done it without the strong support from all of his family.
Bert is not one to ask for help or seek out assistance, but we want to show him how much support he has in his life. If you would be so kind to donate funds to help with medical expenses or leave a kind note for him that would be greatly appreciated!
