On January 24th, Mr. Akers underwent major brain surgery to remove a large tumor that was growing in his right temporal lobe. The surgeons were able to successfully remove 70% of the tumor, but had to leave the remaining as it came in contact with a part of the brain to risky to operate on. They then sent off the part of the tumor to be biopsied- came back as Glioblastoma, a malignant, rapidly growing tumor. Although this diagnosis is not what the Akers wanted to hear by any means, they all agreed that with God by their side they would fight this together and seek treatment.
Greg and Christine both left their jobs behind in TN while they further treatment here in Florida. As this was a shock to all, the financial burden is heavy. The clinical trials alone are 17k ( not including daily necessities) As you can imagine, any help is greatly appreciated!!!!
