In the middle of December 2016, Chester had a few bad headaches and flu like symptoms. After a week and a half with not much progress, the doctor ordered an MRI. The MRI showed that Chester had a tumor located deep in the middle of his brain. After undergoing a biopsy, the tumor was diagnosed as a malignant glioblastoma ,and due to its location, was deemed in operable. Chester has chosen to stay with his group of doctors at St. Luke's hospital in Chesterfield,Missouri to receive his initial six weeks of radiation and chemo therapy. The first 2 1/2 weeks of this treatment has been a very difficult experience. Chester suffered a seizure, blood clots in his left leg and steroid induced diabetes. He suffered many complications with the diabetes and was hospitalized for a week. Chester is now receiving rehabilitation care at Mason Pointe, while still undergoing the radiation treatments and chemotherapy. We thank you for all of the prayers, love and support. Our family and friends are the best! Please continue to pray... With Love- Gretchen, Kreighton, Keegan, Karson and Kameran
