Jon was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer (glioblastoma multiforme) after his craniotomy at the end of March 2017. The surgery and tumor left him temporarily paralyzed on his left side. He spent weeks learning how to walk and take care of himself again. He started radiation in June along with chemotherapy. In October, we did a repeat MRI and discovered the chemo wasn't working and the tumor had returned. After talking to several trial studies, Jon started on a trial drug which targets the gene mutation of his tumor. He is a fighter... keeping a good attitude and caring about others even when everything is a struggle.
