On July 2nd, Brian was given a diagnosis that nobody wants to hear by local doctors. That diagnosis was confirmed by the Roger Maris Cancer Center doctors in the days to follow. Brian was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer that had metastasized to the liver.
In the week to follow, Brian would start Chemo Therapy treatments biweekly. Each treatment would bring new challenges and hurdles that would require many visits to the doctor's office and ER. Pain would be the largest challenge.
