Help Keith Fight A Brain Tumor

Keith Buckel is my brother-in-law, and one of the finest people I'm lucky to have met.  The first time he came to visit my sister Natalya from the UK, I instantly took a liking to him.  From that point on, he has taken on an important role in my family and in all of our lives.  His warmth, kindness and sense of humor are second to none, and it's hard to find a more helpful or genuine person.

Recently, Keith went for a routine MRI after complaining of hearing loss to an ENT doctor.  He was informed afterward that he has a large brain tumor and that it requires a 16 hour operation for removal.  Thankfully, the tumor is benign.  However, this was unexpected and the timing is difficult, as the Buckels already have their hands full with a special needs daughter and a newborn son.  
Adding to this,  Keith will need to take time off of work.  Ultimately, the recovery process will take months.

Keith, Natalya, Rory, Ruby Mae and wee Alexander all deserve our love and support during this time, now more than ever.  We are humbly asking for help with medical costs, since even with insurance this surgery is very expensive.  I encourage you all to do what you can, no matter how small or large a donation you are able to make.  

A boxer as hard as nails, Keith is training as we speak for a tough fight.  Behind every great man is a great woman, and Natalya is solid as a rock.  Together they can conquer anything, and I know that in the future they will look back on this experience as a mere bump in the road.

The Buckels are the most giving people I know, so please show them your support!

Thank you,
