Journal entry by Lisa DeRocher

The port and filter are gone! Chris and Dylan were in Omaha by 6am Friday for his surgery. The doctors said everything went well. Next month he’ll follow up with his neurosurgeon and then repeat scans with his oncologist in November.

The past year has been a roller coaster and I’m glad it is behind us. We could not have done it without the love and support from all of you and the amazing care he received at UNMC. He will have follow ups every 3 months but plans to live life to the fullest and as normal as possible. He has taught us the power of a positive mindset and to never give up. He advocated for himself and made sure his care team knew his goals. His strength gave us strength.

Thank you again!
