Perry  is a 39 year old husband and father of 4 children, ( Sam- 10, Carly- 8, Grady- 3 and Charlie- 1).  Perry was diagnosed in with a high grade Glioblastoma brain tumor in December and had surgery only 4 days after diagnosis with successful removal of most of the tumor.  He is completing his chemotherapy and radiation at the University of Iowa.  After his chemo and radiation is completed, Perry and Darcy are on the search for medical team to continue to assist them with giving Perry the best chance for healthy recovery!  Perry is a fighter has always been a top 1% kinda guy so we know it is possible! 

I have had multiple people who don't live in the Chicago area ask me how they can help! We all care so deeply for Perry, Darcy and their family so we thought setting up this fundraising site would be one way people could do just that! This campaign is set up to help them with travel expenses, meals while on the road, medical expenses and any other needs for the family. Perry and Darcy want you to know that they appreciate all that you have done already!!! They have received cards, gift cards, checks, care packages, texts, phone calls and so many prayers.  They can feel the LOVE from everyone. THANK YOU!

Perry and Darcy want you to know that they greatly appreciate your donation and are truly thankful for all the continued support and prayers!
