We're raising money to help pay Brian's medical expenses so he can focus on what is important...beating cancer. Thanks for your support!

A year ago, Brian began to feel a pain in his right foot. Thirty-nine years old with a wonderful family of four (soon to be five) and a promising career as a litigator, Brian had little time to worry about aches and pains. His doctors, unsure of the source of the pain, provided treatment, but the pain lingered and worsened. In early 2011, doctors took a biopsy on tissue in Brian's leg and discovered something awful: a cancerous tumor. But the bad news didn't end there: doctors found a second tumor on Brian's lung.

Over the course of the past seven months, Brian has endured emotionally and physically draining treatments in confronting this cancer. He has suffered through debilitating rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, amputation of his right foot, and removal of 15% of his lung. Though doctors successfully removed the tumors, straggler cells still roam his bloodstream, and Brian faces yet another round of chemo in the coming weeks.

Throughout this process, the law firm of Bauman, Dow & Leon, where Brian practices, has graciously supported him. However, co-pays, insurance deductibles, and prescription costs are adding up more quickly than any one person, firm or family can keep up. We ask that you consider contributing through this website to help Brian pay these bills.

As Brian returns home to begin again, he needs to be able to focus on the truly important things in his life: his family and his health. Any amount you can give, no matter how little, is greatly appreciated.
