For Bret Baumgarten & his family!

Bret Baumgarten is one of the most caring and vibrant human beings that you will ever meet.  A gentleman, athlete, friend, husband and father with a heart of pure gold! With his infectious smile and his positive attitude, anyone that has come into contact with Bret is an instant fan.  Bret is happily married to the love of his life and has two beautiful young children.  Bret has been battling pancreatic cancer for nearly a year.  He has been through Chemotherapy and has gone after the cancer with every aggressive means, however. it breaks my heart to say that things are getting worse.  

Recently he has co-authored a children's book Beautiful Hands. The book is titled Beautiful Hands because of Bret's experience of holding his daughter's hands every morning and asking her, "What will your beautiful hands do today?"  

It is our hope that through gofundme we can in some way help to lighten the load of this truly inspiring man and his wonderful family.
