Update and the Intergalactic BBQ!

The Allen family has traveled to St. Jude's hospital in hopes that the doctor's there can remove more of Bradley's tumor so the proton therapy will be successful. They traveled to St. Jude's not knowing whether insurance would cover another surgery or not, but planned to move ahead either way, as this is the best path to take for Bradley. They found out today that insurance WILL cover the surgery, which is AWESOME news!!

Bradley will have yet another MRI tomorrow, so please say some prayers that the tumor has not grown. As long as the MRI results show that the tumor has not grown beyond what is manageable, Bradley will have another surgery on Friday.

Please keep Bradley and the Allen family in your prayers, especially over the next few days!

On another note, a new fund raiser is in the works! Bradley's Buddies Presents an Intergalactic BBQ!! The Allen family's church is putting on the latest fund raiser to help raise money for the protone therapy and other expenses. There will 3-5 actual star wars characters in attendance, a silent auction, Wookie burgers, Anikon dogs, and many other fun things for every one to enjoy! The event will be held September 18, from 11:00am - 2:00pm at Crestbrook Park, NE 9th & Crestmoore Pl in Ankeny, IA, We'd love to see you there!

As always, many thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers. God Bless!
