Hi, we are glad you're here! This information is written through the perspective of Steve's daughter's, Jenn & Michelle and his wife, Becky. In case you didn't know, Steve was diagnosed in August 2018 with a brain cancer known as Glioblastoma Multiforme or GBM. He underwent surgery to remove the tumor, followed by aggressive radiation; however, GBM tumors always return, and usually rather quickly. At the end of July 2019, Steve made the brave decision to discontinue treatment as the treatment wasn't affecting the tumor and was dramatically decreasing his quality of life. Following this decision, he and Becky moved to Steve's childhood home in Portland to be closer to family and friends who could help Becky and the girls care for him in his final days. While he's no longer able to speak or walk, he remains in relatively good spirits and can understand what we say. We appreciate all the tributes, visits, and support we've received from his community.
