The Dean Team
Thanks to The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Canter at Duke University, Duke University Medical Center and staff, Dr. Alan Friedman, Dr. James Vredenburgh, and the Act Pharmacy program (who so generously provided Joe's chemo for one year at no charge to him!) we are kicking Joe's ASStrocytoma!
We consulted several notable neurosurgeons over the past few years who all said "Go home and have a nice life" due to Joe's tumor location - it is deep in his speech center and is not operable. Well, they were all wrong! We will be forever grateful to the Duke University Medical System and Brain Tumor Center for giving us hope, support, and the best care we could ever ask for! I have been a respiratory therapist for 25 years, and believe me I am critical when it comes to health care. Duke far exceded our expectations every step of the way! The money we raise for tumor research DOES make a difference! Joe is living proof! So please, give what you can and know your dollar really does matter! Thank you more than you can know. Linda Dean, RRT and Joe's Mom :)
