Healing Prayers and Support for Scott

53342200_1608155371872221_r.jpegScott  Bernsten is one of the most friendly, happy, funny humans who I have ever had the privilege to know. He exudes positivity and can lift one's vibration through one of his infamous stories or through a song he wants to play for you! He is a wonderfully kind husband to Mary Yamamoto and father of two boys, Lars and James. He also has a love for travel and hockey and for being of service during his travels. Scott has been a giving and serving member of the Steamboat Springs community for over 30 years. 

On Monday, December 7, Scott was taking his usual yoga class when his wife noticed that something was just not right. She had been noticing this for several months and Scott was tested for early onset Alzheimer's. But, tonight was different. Mary, his wife, quickly drove him to the Emergency room. Here, he was given an MRI and a flight for life  to Denver with the discovery of a brain tumor. In Denver, Scott received a major surgery to remove the tumor. Upon partial removal, he was diagnosed with Glioblastoma brain cancer. 

This beautiful family needs our support with prayer, love and positivity and also financially. There are huge medical expenses that are accumulating already and this is just the beginning of his journey toward healing. Scott will be unable to work, nor will his wife Mary, as she will be his main caretaker. There will be no income for traveling to appointments, including gas, lodging and food and all of the other expenses of life and a medical emergency.

Scott is trying to find his way back home to his family, friends and the people who he loves. Your support would mean the world to him and his family. Let's help this Steamboat family out the way that Steamboat is known for. Any support is appreciated and welcomed. Thank you!!!
