Hello Vibes Board!


I know we are all mostly strangers here and I know that these boards are often just a diversion, but I also know sometimes folks on here can do some good, and it's to that group that I'd like to ask for a little support for my young nephew.

My nephew Ian was diagnosed with a brain tumor (a Craniopharyngioma) just after his 5th birthday in 2009. Through numerous surgeries and many chemo treatments, his doctors have been able to remove the tumor. But by the time the tumor was discovered it had grown very large and the resulting pressure damaged areas of his brain.

Ian hasn't yet fully recovered from this damage and he remains in a semi-comatose state. We continue to pray for a miracle and hope that one day Ian can once again can laugh and play and run around with his friends. Until then Ian requires 24 hour a day care and has significant medical expenses related to his condition.

I've created this fundraiser to pull together some Help For Ian. Any contribution wiill go along way and is greatly appreciated! Thank you!! John Mac

People are strange when you're a stranger.

I suppose I meant me and most readers of my posts are strangers.   I've been mostly lurking around here for years, but my nephew's condition has compelled me to reach out.

 

Thank you for the vibes!!  :bigsmile:

Thanks again to all who have supported this effort!

 

It has been a very difficult 3 years for my sister and her family.  Medical expenses have been incredible & even a little bit helps.   And just knowing there are people who wish them well and send their prayers and vibes has also helped alot.
