Reid’s Story

Site created on March 19, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Reid was diagnosed with a 3cm brain tumor in his left temporal lobe on Monday March 12th. The next day we were able to get in with Dr. Allan Friedman at the Duke tumor center who said the tumor was likely malignant. Surgery was scheduled for the following Monday. We will update this site as we learn more.

Friday we went as a family to meet with
the Duke oncology team.  The team is great, it is headed up by Dr. David Ashley, he is from Australia!  
They gave us a plan.  Reid will do radiation and chemo therapy monday thru Friday for 6 weeks.  Reid will then take 4 weeks off.  Then he will then do 5 days of chemo with 23 days off for 5 months.  We hope and pray this will take care of the cancer.  If it comes back there are many new options Reid can try.  Thank you all for your love, prayers and support.  We are very optimistic 😊
