Voices Against Brain Cancer


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!!!
