On December 6, 2011 Steve was diagnosed with stage IV B Burkitts Lymphoma, including bone marrow.
His entire lymphatic system was besieged by the cancer, he also had many tumors in his torso and an extremely large tumor in his head that caused facial drooping. The cancer can kill you in 10 days. Steve was on day 12.
He started emergency chemotherapy. His complications to chemo kept him in the hospital for a good amount of the time.
On March 1st his Oncologist said he was in remission. But by May it had returned with a vengeance.
The chemotherapy can hold the cancer at bay, but it isn’t killing it. Steve is now being sent to MD Anderson. He is in need of a bone marrow transplant. His family, wife and 3 children, are fighting hard to be by his side.
Please consider helping them. Every penny and cheek swab helps keep them together.
