Russell Up for the Cause

Family & Friends,

As you all know Russell has been battling brain cancer for over a year now but by looking at him you would never know it. Almost a year ago to the date from his first diagnosis which was May 2017 they have discovered that two more tumors have grown while he is still on chemo for the first one. The larger one of the two was inoperable so he went through another round of an aggressive radiation called Gamma Knife.  As of yesterday we found out that it only shrunk the spot 20% and the tumor has spread even further.  So Russell will have another surgery this month to remove as much of the tumor as possible in hopes that it will help rid him of the Simple Partial Seizures that have been effecting his speech.   After the reduction they will extend the chemo he is on now as well as add a new one intravenously every two weeks.  With all that being said Russell has now been diagnosed with grade 4 Glioblastoma also known as GBM which is the most aggressive type of brain cancer there is.  Russell will have an EEG next week and we will then know more as to when the procedure will be done.

Brain cancer is a hellacious beast to over come but we all know that Russell Daniel is NOT a follower. Please keep him and our family in your prayers.  

Please pass this information on to those who may not be in direct contact with Russell who would like to know what his next steps will be as well as adding him to their prayer list.  The power of prayer is amazing! 

With Love,
