The Vaillancourt Family
The surgery was successful and both tumors were removed and sent to pathology. Although we do not have official results from the biopsies (expected next week), the Vaillancourt family (single family income) will have a long road ahead. With regular doctors visits, prescription medication, and every day household expenses for the family.
Please consider any donation to assist the family in their time of need. Thank you and God Bless!
Jenna Koch, long time family friend and spokesperson said, "Mother and Baby are doing amazing. Wyatt Eli graced the world with his presence at 3:11am on Friday morning.

Prayers for you and your family! My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 gliablastoma also...4 years ago last December and still no sign of regrowth! After his surgery for removal of the tumor (they were only able to remove 75%) he went through radiation and placed on Temadar, which didn't work and the tumor was growing again within 4 months, he was told to go home and enjoy what was left of his life...they said 9-12 months. We refused to accept that and God led us to a dr that specializes in gbm at uams in Little Rock, Arkansas! Long story short she sent him to NIH in Maryland for clinical trials. My husband said if it didn't help him, maybe it would the next person! They put him on Avastin and within 2 months the tumor was gone and hasn't returned!!! He still has to go for his avastin every 3 weeks and the drs said he will have to for the rest of his life but he's here and going strong and doing pretty much anything he wants! From articles I have found on the internet, some have went 10+ years without any regrowth! Please don't give up and find a dr that won't give up!!! But most of all... Stay strong in your faith in God!!! He isnt finished with you and your sweet family...this is just a bump in the road! Again, we will be praying for you and your family!!!
My husband was diagnosed with a GBM on December 3rd and is currently going through chemo and radiation. We have 4 small children and I know exactly what you guys are going through. Please do not give up hope. There are long term survivors- we have spoken to a 12 year and 15 year survivor and it gave us so much inspiration. I'd love to share their names with you if you'd like to speak to them yourself- you can private message me at Aimee Staudt. You can also read our story at gofundme/jeffstaudt I have done a ton of research on additional things such as diet, suplimentation and essential oils. We believe in both traditional medicine and also looking outside the "standard treatments". There is hope- do not lose your faith. My husband, family, friends and I have adapoted the motto "Win The Day". Every day is a win- there are never any guarantees. God has a plan- please know that you can rely on others such as us to keep your spirits high. Please reach out to me if you'd like to talk more. We are living through the same fears you are. We will add you to our prayers. Keep fighting and win the day! With Love, Aimee and Jeff Staudt. #wintheday
I am so unbelievably sorry for all your family is going through. Although I cannot help monetarily, I would gladly offer some meal preparations, help with the children or any kind of help. My husband also works for TOT and we are a family of 6 as well so we know how that alone is stressful. God Bless your family. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

That the ripple effect will be FAR AND WIDE as YOU accomplish Miraculous things thru theses lives YOU have created! BLESS IN EVERY WAY, financial, Spiritual, emotional and physical. Give them YOUR WISDOM...and, HOLY SPIRIT, please heal her on this earth, completely!! We desperately need these courageous people longer....in JESUS, GLORIOUS STRONG NAME! AMEN, SO BE IT!
I wasn't done, I have references. Your wife has touch me, you see I too have something in my brain, they are watching it has not done anything in months, but I too could be in your wives shoes at anytime. So please take my number and if I can do anything, even if it it to go to the grocery store for you, change a diaper ( I was a nanny once) help with the children, I would just like to help your family. My name is Frances . Don't want to leave my number on a public forum so you could find me on Facebook under Frances Rego Galdon if you would like my help. And of course it all would be pro bono. ♥
I can't say more than the other people who have posted so far. I also had stage 4 Glioblastoma and was given 9 months to live. This year on the day after Thanksgiving it will be 25 YEARS since I heard those words. I have lived a completely normal life. The first 7 years I couldn't feel my leg, but that came back too. I used to go for Chemo in the morning before work, and nobody knew (except my boss). In fact, I don't even think about. When I told my (then girlfriend, now wife) she didn't believe me until I showed her pictures. I guess I'm just saying, plan your life just like you would have if you didn't get sick. Don't change anything. Enjoy everyday, and good luck!!!
I forgot to mention my husband dud go off all sugar, fried or fatty foods. And He juiced twice a week to remove toxins. Drs are amazed. I know so many things thrown your way, not practical or affordable. Please check kangen water as in my comment below.
My husband same thing. Stage 4 brain n spine cancer. Said so aggressive prob wouldn't make it. Had radiation n Cyberknife at Utsw Dallas. Amazing Drs n staff. Did all they could and nothing left to offer him. Kangen water was shared with us. Each 8 ounce glass equal to 20,000 blueberries. He has gotten rid of spine cancer n now 3 out of 6 tumors in brain are gone. I'm not a believer in most cures/ ideas. This was worth the try. My husband is 42, healthy otherwise, fit, father of 4 girls (14,13,7,3) we have been married 21 years. Please look into this. Huge in Japan.
Congratulates! Your family remains in our prayers!
