Thank you so much for all the love pouring in for Clayton and his family.  It has been a tough time and the support is appreciated. 

What the family needs are wishes, prayers and love. Specifically, if you'd like to give or do more to help, here is a link to a meal train.

So many of you have asked so if you'd like to donate funds, PLEASE go to  the purple "Personal Fundraiser" under Activate Support or go to the Ways to Give.  

Monday, Feb 5, Clayton presented with symptoms of a stroke. His wife, Susan, took him to the ER where a CAT scan revealed he had a tumor in the left side of his brain.  He was quickly transferred to Adventist Health Glendale.  

Tuesday, Feb 6, Clayton had a MRI that revealed tumors that the neurologist said were MOST LIKELY  aggressive and not benign.  A biopsy and surgery was scheduled for this morning.

Wednesday, Feb 7, Clayton had a MRI where 50% of the tumors were removed. The preliminary findings is that he has a glioma which is a cancerous tumor. The specifics of the tumors and the plan for treatment will be determined after the full official pathology report in the days to come.  An oncologist will be joining his team of top care.  He will spend one night in ICU and then be moved back to his room.  The hope is that he'll be able to go home this weekend. 

Thursday, Feb 8, Clayton is doing well and will be moving out of ICU today.   This is good. 

Susan will have family staying with her in addition to caring for her and Clayton's amazing daughter, Cecilia.  She does have a tribe of close women gathered around them but help and prayers are appreciated.  

We are keeping Clayton and Susan's phones free for medical communications, so the best way to get a message to them is via this site. Or contact Andrea Wachner at (917) 770-2275

Thank you.
