     Steve was diagnosed with a brain tumor on September 24,  2018 after having an MRI for head tremors. A subsequent pet scan  indicated the tumor was most likely a meningioma located in the left frontal lobe. Quickly we sought the expertise of the best surgeons and doctors in the area for that particular type of tumor. This led us to Dr. Brem, chief of Neurosurgery at John Hopkins. We were fortunate enough to meet with Dr. Brem in early October who took Steve's case.
     Steve is now scheduled for a craniotomy on November 14th at John Hopkins with Dr. Brem and his team. The surgery will begin at 7:30 am and we’ve been told it could take 4-5 hours. From there, Steve will go to the ICU and then acute care. We anticipate he will be in the hospital for 3-4 days. I will do my best to keep friends and family updated on this site the day of surgery and days after. 
     We appreciate all the support we have received and the prayers and good wishes. We know your thoughts are with us during this stressful time and please know we will get through this. We are strong. We will come away from this with a greater appreciation of happiness, health and optimism.

     Thank you all.
                  Kim and Steve
