As most of you know, in January 2018 Martin was diagnosed with a Malignant PeripheralSheath Tumor (MPST) in the Brachial Plexus, an area deep in the upper right side of his chest. The tumor is embedded beneath a network of many nerves, thus creating loss of function to Martin’s right arm. You may want to google to understand more specifically about this type of tumor, which is rare and very aggressive. Martin has lived in Philadelphia, PA for the last seven years, where he established and owned his own business, Seneca Historic. He has worked as a carpenter with historical restoration, specifically with doors and windows being his specialty and passion. Because of the seriousness of this type of cancer, Martin closed down his business and shop to take on the task of many months of treatment. This site is set up to keep our family and friends updated and also for support as we continue along. You are our team and so appreciated. Thank you for visiting Martin’s site and feel free to make a journal entry anytime to say hello and give words of encouragement.
