Many of you are probably wondering what this page is about. In February of this year my dad was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor that all but took over the left side of his brain. Doctors say it was only about 2 months old. He lost most of the ability on his right side and him memory was all but gone. At first, he was told to go home and get comfortable for the last approximately 4 weeks. Then, a gleam of hope when we were told by a family friend about Radiosurgery of New York. My sisters, Elizabeth Diane McGrath, Catherine Shackelford, and Dawn Hamilton Kennedy immediately took him to New York City for treatment. After 6 weeks of combined radio surgery and chemotherapy, MRI's showed that the tumor was shrinking. For about two weeks he seemed to almost be back to his old self. Then, he suddenly went downhill again. His doctor informed my sister this morning that the tumor, had not only come back, but was more aggressive and larger than before. We are not ready to give up, and are asking for your help. Any donation would help. The treatment is very expensive, and the cost of living in NYC is difficult to afford. For those of you who know or knew my dad, you knew what a kind and caring person he was and is. Please look into your hearts and ask yourself, what if it was your father, or brother, or you in this situation. This is his life we are talking about. In the end, it is all we have.
