My awesome brother.

Hello. I am Marisa Brady a sister who really would like to help her brother somehow with the expenses that cannot be maintained while going through this rough time so I started this page !!!!

   My brother Steven Brady was diagnosed with a rare Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor two months ago. We were told he would need surgery which he had on 9/28. Today he followed up with his doctor thinking that this was it. The doctor mentioned that the tumor looked "grossly negative" upon removal and had us hoping that there was a chance maybe this was benign after all and gave us some hope. Maybe the  bad news was over and he could breathe with no worries . He was told today that the biopsy done post surgery confirmed the cancer and a very rare one.Both a Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor and Malignant Triton Tumor. Something the doctor said doesn't happen very often. He is unable to work and has to have many weeks of radiation and numerous scans every three months. He must be monitored very closely. Any one who knows my brother knows he stubborn, he didn't want to ask for help. So with finally getting his permission I made this page to build up some support for him. This situation has him feeling corned,  stressed and scared. This is truly changed his life in so many ways, as well as the lives of  those who love him.  I would really appreciate a small donation showing support. For medical bills and expenses that may not be covered. Travel to and from doctors appointments / radiation, general bills etc. to lighten the load on my brother. I’d hate for him to have to stress finances when going through this. All I want is for him to be in the clear and live his life happily.  Please keep him in your prayers for a smooth recovery , strength and tons of love and support. ❤️Thank you so much ! Truly appreciated ❤️
