Bryan was diagnosed last August with a very aggressive Stage 4 Esthesioneuroblastoma, which is a tumor that originated in his sinus cavity but became so large it pushed on his optic nerve and brain. He went through 5 unsuccessful cycles (13 rounds) of chemotherapy to try to get it to shrink before he underwent surgery to remove it. The 20-hour surgery was January 10thand after spending 3 weeks at Roswell, he is home and physically getting stronger.
They were able to remove the tumor and reconstruct his skull, but he did lose his left eye in the process. He still has a long road ahead for him and his young family. He and his wife, Bethany, are expecting baby number two in April. He has been out of work for 7 months, and with additional radiation needed that time will continue. Bethany has put work on hold in order to help care for her family. Sales of this design will help pay their medical and living expenses during this process.
Please consider a shirt purchase or donation to Bryan's online fundraiser.
