In the fall of 2016 Ben was experiencing severe headaches. On November 14, 2016 he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and immediately admitted to the hospital. Brain surgery was performed the following day and later that week the tumor was diagnosed as Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade 4, one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer. He underwent radiation and chemotherapy but as with this aggressive cancer, it returned in September 2017. He has undergone additional surgeries of the brain and other parts of the body. In December it was discovered that the cancer has metastasized outside the brain into several parts of his body. He started experimental chemotherapy in December and has undergone very aggressive radiation to bring relief from this cancer. Please consider a shirt purchase to help, or visit Ben's website to help.
