Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated, for words of hope and encouragement and other things like meal trains, errands, GoFundMe and more. 

As you may know Brandon went to the emergency room on the morning of August 23rd for some kidney pain he was having, after a few tests in the emergency room, they decided to do a CT scan to see if there was a blood clot that was causing the pain. That's when they found the mass around his left kidney and that possibly spread to his lungs, and giving us the news that he has stage 4 cancer. This was news that no one would have expected and came in shock to everyone.  He was then admitted into the hospital where they monitored him and he received a biopsy for the mass around his left kidney.  He was then sent home after a few days with results pending. So all in one week he had a cancer diagnosis, 2 CT scans, MRI scan, biopsy, and two sleep studies. After the biopsy results of the mass came back, from what we know, he has Adrenalcortical Carcenoma, which is a rare form of cancer, that sits above the adrenal gland of the kidney. A PT scan will follow Friday the 10th along with a biopsy within the next week for the lungs. This is what we know from the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center in Thornton. We will be seeking a second opinion from the University as they will want to run their own test and do their due diligence. 
He has taken this time to reflect and spend time with his family, friends, and has even been letting his wife Devin try to cook, because if you know Brandon, he loves his kitchen and loves to cook!  He is very thankful for the love and support he has received from friends, family and the community he’s known since he moved to Brighton in 2001. 

We will keep everyone updated with what's next, how he is feeling, how our family is doing, pictures and more!

*We will have a GOFUNDME set up in the next few days
