Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. 

Our sweet boy Max was recently diagnosed with brain cancer.  We ordered an MRI after Max experienced episodes of severe head pain while playing tennis, the sport that he loves so much.  The preliminary diagnosis is that Max has a low-grade glioma on his right frontal lobe.  This is beatable: an early-stage tumor in an accessible location.  The surgeon seemed optimistic that surgery may be all that is needed.  Post-surgery he’ll be in ICU for 3 to 5 days and then will recover in whichever unit the pathology leads us to.  And then a multi-week/month recovery at home. 

We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.  Max would be thrilled to receive a note or a video from you which you can do in the well wishes tab.  We will also update you on Max's progress in the journal.  Thank you for visiting!
