The family and friends of Melissa and Jesse Harry are uniting to raise money to help with their son Ben's battle against a brain stem tumor.

Benjamin Harry is the 4 year old son of Melissa and Jesse Harry. He was diagnosed in May 2011 with a benign brain stem tumor. After two 10 hour surgeries they were able to remove about 90% of the tumor. He also had another surgery on his 3rd ventrical in his brain. He has had to relearn how to sit,stand and walk. He still has left sided weakness and issues with his eyes. He still goes to physical and occupational therapy. Just recently he started 4K! We are so proud of how far he has come!! But just this week, during a routine MRI it was clear that the remaining tumor has grown some. The next step will be Chemo or surgery or a combination of the two. We are awaiting the doctors from American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, WI for their treatment plan. Medical costs are adding up fast even with insurance. Lots of co-pays and deductables and traveling costs are expensive. Plus with the new treatments there will be alot of days the parents won't be able to work.

Please help the family out if you can. If you can't we understand but would really appreciate your prayers for Ben!

If you would prefer to mail a check, you may do so in Benjamin's name and send to:

Jesse and Melissa Harry
N542 Thelosen Drive
Appleton, WI 54915
