On December 7, 2016 Todd was on his way home from a business trip in Arizona; he was disoriented and couldn't figure out how to get back to the airport (a place he had been numerous times). Thankfully he made it home, but upon arriving I noticed something wasn't right and rushed him to ER. We soon discovered the cause of his confusion was due to a tumor, which was surgically removed two days later. In a couple of weeks we were given the dreaded news that he had a very aggressive brain cancer (GBM: glioblastoma multiforme grade IV); average prognosis 15 months. The tumor was in the right occipital lobe and he lost his left peripheral vision in both eyes which meant he also lost his privilege to drive. In January 2017, he began 6 weeks of radiation and chemo. He remained on the chemo and wore a device called Optune until May 2018. On May 25, 2018 he had another surgery to remove tumor. At the end of June doc decided to try another chemo. Since then Todd has been in and out of the hospital as a result of seizures and small strokes.
