My Stepfather Fighting Cancer

My stepfather was diagnosed with Malignant Glioma, a type of brain cancer, back in March 2018. He was driving home from work, blacked out and crashed his car head-on into a tree. What a blessing in disguise as that’s how we found out he had a tumor on his brain. For the past seven months he has been out of work, in and out of hospitals fighting this. My mom, who has been struggling to nurse him back to health has also been out of work. His chemo treatments and additional medication makes him practically immobile, but he needs them to get well. The good news is, the tumor is shrinking, just very slowly. With your help, we can beat this!!

Guys, we cannot lose him. My two little girls cannot lose their Pop-Pop. They have no idea why he can’t play with them anymore and it breaks my heart because they’re just so young and don’t understand. This man means the world to so many people, and if you know him, you’d know that.

Please help my family in this time of great need.
