T-M Classmate Could Use our Help

Brian Bainter, Trotwood Class of 1975, has came upon some rough times.  He was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, "ACC", Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma.  Brian went through chemo and radiation treatments all while still keeping a job.  Brian recently has "lost his voice" and is unable to work his telemarketing job.  The doctors here just told him that the cancer is back and basically he is on his own looking for treatment. They suggested a place in Boston however that isn't an option due to insurance.

  He did contact The Ohio State University Hospital James Cancer Center and it appears they will see him.  It is unknown if or when Brian will be able to return to work.  At this point Brian is struggling to pay his bills, keep food in his home, electric bills etc are coming due.  So along with getting this news about his health he now also has to stress over everyday expenses.  If you could donate through this site and/or to Brian personally it would be much appreciated. 

This is a fairly urgent situation and Brian said he has been homeless before and cant imagine being homeless again and fighting cancer.  Brian did not ask me to do this but I felt that "we are our brothers keepers" and lets help Brian fight this and keep his dignity.  God Bless You All, if you cant donate please send prayers.  No amount is too small...……………..

If you are unaware Brian grew up in Trotwood, still resides in the Dayton area, he was in band, grew up in the plat behind the high school and besides all that is a super nice guy.
