Step up to bat for Brian

On August 3rd Brian was diagnosed with Chondosarcoma. This is a form of bone cancer located on his hip. He will be going to Iowa City to have a total hip replacement in hopes of removing the tumor. He will stay in the hospital for 4-5 days then be moved to a rehabilitation center for a few weeks. We do not know when or if he will be able to return to work. All donations will be used for travel, medical expenses and to help pay bills while Brian is unable to work.
Brian is the most generous man he is always the first to step up to help any of his family and friends. We would love to show Uncle Brian and his family how much we appreciate all he has done for us. Let’s all step up to bat for Uncle B!!
