I'm raising money in honor of Steve Kelly, the husband of a friend who lost his battle with gliblastoma on May 14, 2018. Below are words from Steve's wife, Erin, along with words of friends close to Steve.
Steve Kelly was diagnosed with glioblastoma on February 7, 2015 and had beaten the odds for more than 3 years. His faith in God and his wonderful wife and son sustained him in this journey as he fought the disease and endured surgery, chemo, radiation, and clinical trials. His incredible resilience, quiet determinitation, and spirit indeed "kept the faith" for his family and friends who supported him on this journey. - Heather Vasek
"The bravery with which Steve endured unimaginable treatment for Glioblastoma is a testament to his faith. He never complained about the painful and debilitating treatments. He never asked why he was chosen for this disease. For 39 months,
Steve faced his mortality with care and concern about how it was impacting others. He unabashedly shared his faith with anyone he came in contact with. Hair dressers, shuttle bus drivers, nurses, distant family and friends to name a
few. If Steve could have had one wish, it would be that through his illness, people would come to know Jesus." -Erin Kelly
Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. To show my support, I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s Team Breakthrough Endurance program. Money raised will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
