Help Brendan fight a rare Brain Tumor.

My daughters youngest son Brendan had a seizure  back in November of last year. He was taken to Danville Er where a scan was done on his head. They saw a mass. They then sent him to Roanoke where they did scans as well it was then we found out he had a Tumor in his brain behind his left eye. They did surgery to remove it but were unable to remove it all due to it being fatal to Brendan. They wanted to do testing on it so it was sent to several different hospitals to test it. The tumor ended up being a very rare type called PXA for short one that the doctors said they would never see again in their lifetime. We were told that is was a very slow growing tumor and it would be years or decades before he would have to deal with it again.  The scariest part was when they said it was a malignant tumor and this tumor is almost always benign. They said that the tumor itself would contain the cancer that it would not spread. We left with a little hope that he would be ok for a long time.  Well that just wasn't in the cards. They did another scan in April of this year to see if anything had happened or grown and to all of our shock it had started to grow back at an alarming rate. He had another surgery in April. They still were not able to get it all.  They said if they did he could stroke out on the table and die. Well as of May 6th they started doing Radiation treatments everyday for 6 1/2 weeks . He just finished his fourth week today.  She has to drive almost 2 hours each way everyday. She was coming home and then going to her job. She needs help desperatly  Her car tires are wearing out the AC is not working like it should. I just want her to know she is not alone in this world and there are people that will help out. It is needed ASAP. Thank you all for your generosity.
