My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support, prayers, words of hope, encouragement, and good vibes during this time when it matters most.

Brandon was planning to go to the boundary waters with brothers Jason, Trevor, nephew Axle (7) and friend Drew.  Decided to get checked by his doctor because he kept having pain off and on in lower abdomen and didn't want to have a ruptured appendix in the woods somewhere.  He then had a cat scan that showed a 12 cm mass in abdomen with some touching the outside of the colon.  Then he had a biopsy that confirmed it was cancer.  Very rare for a 26 yr old.  Then he had a pet scan and the Good news is that there is no cancer anywhere else.  ALL the other organs are good along with a healthy blood count.  We went to MN Oncology and due to the complicated surgery, we are now being directed to the MAYO clinic for a consultation this Tuesday 7 am and the best  world team of surgeons will figure this all out.  Brandon is feeling fine, eating great and still working and very positive.  We are all taking this one day at a time and so appreciative of everyones prayers, and overwhelming support -  it helps so much so so much
