Help Brandon Beat the Beast!
Brandon is a warrior. He is bravely fighting a rare cancer called RhabdoMyoSarcoma. The cause of his cancer is unknown and there are only a 100 cases diagnosed per year. Because Brandon's cancer is so rare, he cannot be treated at a local hospital. He needs to go to a center that specializes in Sarcoma. He needs to be cared for by doctors who have seen the most cases. This is his only opportunity to fight this cancer which is known so little about.
Brandon has had two surgeries. Because of the nodual in his lung he is staged at stage 4 and will begin a tough and challenging fight to Beat the Beast. Chemo and radiation are scheduled for over a year and with every doctor visit and treatment he is that much closer to be cured.Unfortunately, insurance does not pay for travel, lodging, and meals.
