Young dad battling brain cancer

25 year old Sebastian Delagado is a loving husband to his wife Monica and a devoted father to his two young boys, Jedediah (19months) and River (2months). There is nothing he loves more than spending time with his family, their two dogs, and getting outside.

Unfortunately, in 2014 Sebastian was diagnosed with grade 2 Astrosytoma, a tumor in his brain.  In September 2014, he underwent surgery in which the doctors successfully removed a large amount of the tumor. Recovery was difficult, but he has been able to lead a (mostly) normal life for the past 3 years.

This September, just two months after welcoming their new baby, Sebastian and his family received the devastating  news that his tumor has started to grow back.

Surgeons have told the Delgados that there is now an 80% chance that this tumor could grow more rapidly and change into a more aggressive type of tumor, so surgery is necessary to attempt to remove it once again. Following surgery that will take place in early 2018, Sebastian will undergo 6 weeks of radiation and 36 weeks of chemotherapy. This is going to be an extremely difficult time for the Delgado’s.

With all this stress, the last thing they should have to worry about is medical bills and supporting their family. We are hoping to take away as much financial burden as possible. Please consider Sebastian and his family and partner with us in supporting them. Any monetary donation or prayers are greatly appreciated.
