     WE NEED YOUR HELP! Stein was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multeforme IV October 2013, the most deadly form of brain cancer. Stein is a fighter so we researched and found help from the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke in North Carolina. HOPE! They filled us with hope and gave us more options which is exactly what we needed! Now our doctors at home are working with Duke and we are in our next stage of the battle! Stein has entered a promising phase 2 clinical trial and we travel to Duke once a month. We are so happy but we are struggling financially to make it happen!  We have 3 young boys that are growing very fast and he needs to be here for them! We are fighting and Stein will never give up!!!! With your help it will help make this journey easier.
Love
Allison

Thank you to all who have helped us. During the first year of Stein's diagnosis with Glioblastoma IV Brain Tumor your donations helped get us through that rough period of adjustment and loss of work. Had we not had you we wouldn't have financially made it happen. Fast forward it has been 20 months since and he is still fighting and we are so happy he is still with us. We have continued with his clinical trial at Duke and his tumor has been reduced over 60% and currently remains stable. AWESOME!!!!

We are in survival mode and so thankful for our family, friends and even strangers who have reached out to us with support. Since we have now been living with Brain Cancer it has taken its toll on us financially and if you could spread the word and help us share our fundraising page that would be very much appreciated!

Light and Love Always,

Allison & Stein

Just wanted to give you an update. We had another appointment with Duke and the MRI shows that the main tumor shrunk a little more. We are happy with the results of the clinical trial so far and wanted to share. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers! It means so much to us. Stein is fighting! Please continue to share our fundraising page as what has been donated has helped in so many ways! I have included some pics of the last MRI, its hard to tell but they measured it for us so we could see the difference from his MRI in June. Love to all of you ~ Allison
