One of our family members has been struck with cancer….

Tyler Brown

Last November Tyler was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. He immediately underwent surgery and shortly after, his tumor marker levels dropped and the cancer subsided for the time being. Tyler was put on a close monitoring schedule. This past month one of his levels showed a suspicious rise, and he was sent into an array of tests. The tests turned up a small mass in the blood vessels near the kidney and several traces in the lymph nodes throughout the pelvis. So here we are just a few weeks later, and Tyler has begun a chemo regimen of 3 cycles of BEP. The regimen will continue through the end of September, with Tyler going in every day for a week for 4-6 hours, then off for two weeks with the exceptions of Mondays. This cycle is repeated for 9 weeks. Tyler will be unable to work during his treatment which puts enormous strain on his family financially. This additional strain couldn’t come at a worse time as his wife Stacey just delivered their second child in mid June.
