Tonight my blog post is to ask for your support in finding a cure for brain cancer. Scott has had surgery and is currently taking chemotherapy but none of that is a cure for brain cancer. Researchers are working hard to find new treatments and they need money to do that. I have faith and hope that they'll find a cure - with our help!
We are walking with a team called "The Spoerl Brainstormers" on Sunday, December 4th, in Central Park, NYC with an organization called Voices Against Brain Cancer. You can support us by making a donation to our team or joining our team as a walker and fundraising yourself in support of our team. To support us in any way, no matter how small, go to http://www.voicesinmotion.org/goto/spoerlbrainstormers
As for Scott, he is doing awesome! It is amazing how well the brain can heal itself! After speaking with his neuro-oncologist last week, he decided to start his first round of chemotherapy. It is in pill form that he takes every night for a week. Then he takes 3 weeks off before starting again.. Tonight is his 6th night in the first cycle. The tumor board met a week and 1/2 ago and all agreed that chemotherapy was the best treatment for him at this point.
Thanks already to all of you who have already donated in support of our team!!!
