Adam is one tough cookie. Nearly 5 years ago, he was diagnosed with a grade 2 oligodendroglioma in his right temporal lobe. It was decided at the time that a craniotomy to retrieve a biopsy and chemotherapy would be the best course of treatment. The tumor was too diffused at the time to remove and the doctors at Henry Ford were confident that a less aggressive approach was the safest. 12 rounds of chemotherapy later, his tumor was considered smaller and stable.
At the end of this summer a routine MRI indicated his tumor had grown. When comparing his 2016 scans to 2013 it was apparent that it was more dense and larger. We discussed options with several wonderful facilities and explored different treatment plans. After a visit to Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota and a lot of prayer, we have decided to begin our journey there.
Please help me wrap Adam, our 3 small children, myself and his doctors in prayer. WE believe that God already knows the outcome for all of us, and he will walk with us during this journey. My dear husband and best friend is an amazing man. He is such a strong, passionate, unapologetic man of faith. His love for Jesus is beautiful and inspiring. I continue to watch Adam grow his relationship with our Lord daily. From the constant Christ centered music playing in his office, to praying with our family together, to teaching our children and myself at times whenever he can about the goodness of Jesus.
Adam is a charismatic soul. He loves to have fun and joke around, be goofy, make others laugh, watch football (Go Lions!) learn new words and use them in casual conversations, play guitar and piano, have dance parties with our kids, play basketball, set off fireworks, go golfing, take our kids fishing, drink craft beer, EAT (anything and everything), watch the office, play euchre, have bon fires, go camping and make others feel good about themselves. He has a special gift of making others feel important and loved.
