Battling for Brody

Four month old Brody was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma on 9/21/18.  Brody had a tennis ball sized tumor on his adrenal gland that spread just about everywhere in his tiny little body. 

Brody is now being treated at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan. Doctors are optimistic about the outcome and Brody has handled all of the surgeries, scans, and chemotherapy well.  Brody, his parents and his two year old sister, Makayla, have a long road ahead of them. 

Brody is undergoing chemotherapy treatment at MSKCC for a minimum of eight months, to be followed by a very serious surgery to remove his adrenal gland.  Further treatments may be necessary after the surgery.

To focus solely on Brody's well-being and the time commitment involved, Nicole has quit her job.

As we know all too well, cancer treatments are very expensive.  With Nicole not working, these expenses become even more overwhelming.  After the new year, Nicole and Chris' insurance will renew, which means all deductibles and out of pocket limits will reset.

At a time like this, we all want to do something to help.  We have started this GoFundMe page to help their family get through this difficult time.

We greatly appreciate your love and support.
