Marvin's Medical Assistance Fund


My Brother In Law Marvin Brown is one of the most kind, caring and compassionate man I know.  He has made a career out of helping others.  He is a retired hospital social worker. His job was helping others get through some of the lowest and toughest times of their lives.  Additionally, during his free time he tirelessly worked with special needs children and adults through Speical Olympics. For many years he would work all week and then give up nights and weekends to coach and play on the unified special olympics softball team the Green Monsters.
He has been struggling with Bladder cancer for almost a year.  He and my sister have been traveling back and forth to Dana Farber almost every Friday. The 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive in to Boston and then home  is tough in and of itself.  Now after surgery and 3 week hospital stay at BWH, the financial toll of cancer treatment is mounting. 
As I have seen him so tirelessly give of  himself to others I want to try to give back to him.  I am setting up this fund to try to do what I can to help them out.
