This fundraiser is for Kelli Brennan-Saucier, a vibrant, intelligent and compassionate young woman who has been diagnosed with grade 2 Oligoastrocytoma brain cancer. Oligoastrocytoma is a brain tumor on the right frontal lobe that causes epileptic seizures and severe headaches. It comprises roughly 19% of all primary brain tumors and is able to extend their reach into adjacent tissues and form “satellite” tumors at distant sites within the brain.


Kelli is a wonderful, intelligent, loving wife, mom and daughter. She’s married with a loving husband and three beautiful children. To her friends, she is the one that people gravitate towards. Always in good spirits, funny and places those around her before herself.


On 3-11-2010 she made the 4.5 hour drive from her house in Maine to Boston’s Brigham and Woman’s hospital. The doctors remove as much of the tumor as they could in the five-hour surgery.


Her stay was only a couple of days before she was sent home. On 3-26-2010 the stitches came out. She said “a little uncomfortable, but glad they’re out”.


This week she is beginning the process of radiation and possibly chemotherapy.


She recently said “..not sure about work at this time, my doc said to do what I can so I will see how I feel once the treatments start. I think I might start playing the mega bugs or the BIG game.”


As you can imagine, her family is concerned with costs. They have not asked for help, but we are hoping that your prayers , thoughts and any assistance provided will keep the focus where it needs to be - healing.


Thank you!
