Benefit Concert

The details for May 12 are set and the information and ticketing is here: www.drumfishmusic.com. There will be three bands playing at the State Theater that night, and proceeds will go to the PLGA foundation (now called A Child's Brain Tumor Cure) to sponsor research focused on finding better treatments for low-grade gliomas. As you all know by now from this journey with us, too little attention is directed to the tumor type that Clay suffers from, and too few clinical trials have focused on developing new treatments. Currently children like Clay have no options but to try one chemo protocol after another, trying to buy time to allow their brains to mature before facing radiation. The doctors and researchers believe better options exist, but there is a desperate need for funding to develop them and get them into clinical trials.

Thank you to my dear friend Sharon Grace for making the connection between a great band looking for a cause (Drumfish) and a great cause looking for an event (us!). If you are local and able to come we look forward to seeing you. Please also feel free to widen the circle and invite others to this event.

JD will take Clay tomorrow morning early for another MRI. We pray that the results will be stable and Clay will be able to continue on this protocol. We will post an update in the next few days. Thank you for your support and blessings.
