If you can help

My cousin and his wife are in Houston right now trying to get their 4 year old son Blake in to see a specialist down there for some experimental radiation treatment in order to save his life. He has brain cancer, had surgery last January to remove the tumors and has been in chemo the last year. They just found out last week that a new tumor is growing on his brain stem and he has only weeks to live.

When they got down to Houston (after driving the weekend from Colorado), they found out that the treatment center will not see them unless they have $125,000 in hand. They are scrambling to do whatever they can to raise the money and to get in to see the doctor. There is a fund set up to take donations if you can help. Checks can be made out to:

Sandy Wells
Cancer Treatment Fund (write on memo line of check)

and send to:

Members Trust of the Southwest Federal Credit Union
PO Box 925687
Houston TX 77092

Email me if you have any questions or would like more information. They also keep a blog updated at: http://www.carepages.com/carepages/BlakeKurtz2004. I can't even imagine as a parent what it would be like to be going through all of this.
