Steven Young Brain Tumor Treatment

This is a campaign to help our friend Steven Young cover the costs associated with undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

Five weeks ago Steven had an MRI and learned that his brain tumor has started to grow again. His doctors advise that he start the radiation and chemotherapy treatments ASAP to help contain the tumor and save his life. 

The radiation will be five times per week for seven weeks. The chemotherapy will begin concurrently and will last at least six months.  The treatments take place at the Anshutz Medical Campus in Aurora, so he will either need to stay in Aurora or be driven there daily. Steven will not be able to drive during the treatments and will need help caring for himself.  

It looks likely that Steven's friend, Larry Berman can arrange to come and stay with Steven for the first seven weeks, which is a blessing.  But this will be a full-time job and Larry needs to be able to support his family while he is here in Colorado. We are starting this campaign to cover the expenses associated with Steven undergoing this treatment, which is critical at this time. This money will also be used to pay Steven's mortgage and bills. Steven is going to try to work some, but the doctors have told him it is unlikely.

Dean Chapla, Michael Herman, David Leevan, and Josh Forman have been actively meeting with Steven about all of this and we all agree $20,000 is needed at this time. Our hope, based on what the doctors are telling us, is that as a result of the treatment, Steven will be able to continue to work, to support himself, and to benefit others.
 
These treatments will start at the end of August. If you can, please help now so Steven can manage this very important medical process.
