Brad has lived with Kidney failure since 1998. He received a transplant in 2002, and developed a small melanoma. It was removed, his immunosuppression was adjusted, and things were good. Fast forward 10 years and Brad's kidney failed. He returned to dialysis, and in July of 2014 was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. The battle has included more than 20 surgeries to remove tumors, radiation, and several chemo therapy options. We are thankful for our medical team at Mayo, and the gift of time to see another kid graduate, two weddings, and the birth of two grandchildren!
