Hey Everyone,

We're writing this post on behalf of our Mom!

Our Dad was admitted to Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx on August 2nd with what we thought was a benign tumor in his heart.  We were told that he would have open heart surgery and the tumor would be removed.  However, after several more tests, Dad having a stroke and many stressful days/nights in the hospital, Dad was finally diagnosed with sarcoma that has metastasized in his heart, lungs, and adrenal glands.  It was a gut punch to all of us.  He completed 5 low dose palliative care radiation treatments and finally returned home on September 2nd, under hospice care.  We have been traveling back and forth to Cornwall as often as we can, but Mom has been a rock through out.  But she could use some much needed help and support!  

We're hoping that friends/family can volunteer their time to help out at the house or just spend time with Dad.  Mom doesn't feel comfortable leaving Dad by himself so she's not able to run errands, get out of the house, decompress, take a nap or just get some much needed alone time.  Dad is in great hands with Mom taking care of him, but she could use a break.

Please let us know if you're able to help out!

Thank you!

Ryan & Justin
