Join us on Sunday October 16th to help the Bradley Family continue fighting cancer! Let's support team member Krystal and her family! Krystal's father was recently diagnosed with small cell lung cancer and begun his battle. Recently, we found out that although his first round with chemotherapy and radiation helped shrink the tumor on his lung; the cancer has spread to his liver. They will be continuing treatment, and look forward to kicking cancer's butt! If you would like to meet Krystal's family and read about her fathers journey thus far,
The Bradley's are local South Jersey natives who believe in the power of family.
Recently in December of 2021, Leroy (Bud), Krystal's father, got the news that there was a tumor the size of a lemon in his upper left lung after being sick with what the doctors thought was a bad case of Bronchitis lasting longer than usual. Unfortunately, they were wrong. At this point, he was already loosing some functionality of the left lung.
Bud was immediately determined to FIGHT!
After it was confirmed that he had Stage 3B Small Cell Lung Cancer, we got together the best plan of action.
Since, Bud has gone through 16 chemotherapy treatments as well as 27 radiation treatments. Bud has been fighting gallantly, going through many tests, scans, and treatments, and even recovering from hospitalization.
Our last scan of the tumor showed that it is shrinking! Unfortunately, as mentioned above we recently found that the cancer has spread to his liver and possibly his esophagus. But we NEVER GIVE UP! We have to keep fighting. We know he will have to undergo more surgeries, biopsies, chemo and radiation, as well as a prescription drug therapy.
We know that this will be a long, tough road, and that this is not over for them. Family takes care of each other, and that's why we knew we had to help Bud fight for his life in any way possible. Please consider joining us on Sunday, October 16th for a Beef N' Beer fundraiser to help support the Bradley Family and their needs in this difficult time.
