Anthony and his family are rallying together to raise money for his fight against his brain tumor. God bless you for your kindness!

At the age of 27, doctors found a mass on the right temporal lobe of Anthony's brain after a bicycle accident. After a craniotomy was performed the mass turned out to be a mixed infiltrating grade II glioma. This means that a slow growing but cancerous tumor was found in Anthony's brain. Anthony underwent surgery on his brain on September 17th, 2010 to take out the tumor. Unfortunately, because of the infiltrating, or finger-like, nature of the tumor, not all of it could be removed without causing further damage. Anthony's recovery from surgery on both his brain and face (from the accident) went well. He is an avid skier and his passion helped him to heal quickly even though the tumor is still growing inside him. Every three months Anthony must undergo an MRI to monitor the tumors growth. Each MRI costs $8,000 so this has not been possible. Anthony also must have some more dental work done to repair his teeth from the bicycle fall. Getting health insurance to help pay for these medical costs has been a nightmare. Anthony's current seasonal job does not qualify him to receive medical benefits. His prior job hired him because he was a good fit for the position and even asked him to make an honest commitment to the job Upon scheduling an MRI appointment, however, the company let him go without reason. Anthony does not want his brain tumor to be an excuse because he is a strong willed and able individual. He does all he can to live his life in the simplest way possible but he fears he may not be getting enough nutrients to keep him healthy. He requests in a letter to his family and friends that they help him out by sending him things such as canned beans and vegetables, trail mix, and beef jerky. His family also requests that you make a donation to this fundraiser to help Anthony with his medical expenses If you would prefer to send a check, you may do so in Anthony’s name and send to: Nancy Adams 2906 Ponce Court, Holiday, Florida 34691. If you have any other questions or would like to speak to a family representative you can call Nancy at 978 375 7599. Thank you and God Bless! Love, Anthony and his family
