As many of you know, for the past year, our family member Dean or friend, has been battling an aggressive form of cancer. For those of you who do not know, Dean went to the Stony Brook emergency room on June 1st, 2016 after experiencing some minor issues and was told he had a mass on his brain. Two days later he was moved to NYU Medical Center, and learned shortly thereafter that he in fact had two tumors - a larger, primary tumor (near the language area) and a smaller, secondary one (near the memory area). Dean had surgery on Friday, June 10th, 2016 at NYU. Dean & Kerri continue to work with a wonderful team of doctors. One year later my brother Dean still continues to fight this horrendous battle, called Glioblastoma. Today Dean can't speak more than a few words at a time, he occasionally has small seizures, he has no use of his right arm, his right leg is very week, he can't write, he can't type and he is having trouble reading and comprehending the words he reads.
Dean and Kerri are blessed with an amazing support network of close family and friends. They have been overwhelmed by the love and support they have received since Dean’s diagnosis. However, many of you have reached out wanting to do even more.
In providing love, strength, prayers, I hope you will donate and help support Dean. I greatly appreicate any and all donations. Please show your support by donating today!
