Dennis faces new hurdles with his battle against brain cancer and we are raising funds to help him have the mobility and freedom he needs. Help us raise the funds necessary to install a chair lift in his house.

As many of you are aware, Dennis was diagnosed with a brain tumor in October 2009.  He is being treated by some of the best doctors in the field at the National Institute of Health, but continues to face many challenges through his battle with brain cancer.  We often ask ourselves, what can I do to help?  Well, today is a day in which we ask for your assistance in Dennis' battle. 

Dennis has been in and out of the hospital on a couple of occasions since the initial surgery to remove the brain tumor. Because of the complexity of brain cancer and the continued treatment and side-effects of the tumor Dennis' mobility has been reduced.  Recently he has not been able to move around nearly as well as he used to be - he simply does not have the strength.

The family has decided to install a chair lift to help him move from the main living level to the bedroom level of their house. The overall cost of the chair lift is approximately $4,000.  We have set this as the fundraising goal in hopes to minimize the out-of-pocket expense the family faces in order to accommodate the safety and ease of mobility for Dennis.

We encourage you to follow Dennis' progress on his CaringBridge website located at:  The site is password protected, so if you do not currently have access to the site, please contact Deb Haeder.

Having been an integral member of Triple Crown Construction, we felt that this is something we could help coordinate since so many of his colleagues continue to inquire about Dennis.  As we send this out to many of our family, friends and colleagues we ask you to please help contribute whatever you may be able to give.  Each and every contribution helps, no matter the size. 

From our family at Triple Crown to the Haeder's - our thoughts and prayers are with you for a speedy recovery.
