June 11 – Post from Brandon

Some of Brandon’s good friends held a fundraiser for him today. This is a letter from Brandon to those who participated and to everyone who has supported him along the way. He is so thankful for every one of you!

Hello Everyone,

I would like to start this letter by apologizing for not being able to make it there. I wanted to be there more than anything to thank each and every one of you personally, but my body had other plans. As I type this, I am so overwhelmed by the love and support you all have given me. I want to sit here and tell you that I am doing fine and will be myself in no time. If I said that though, it would be a lie. This has been the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with in my life. I guess I was a little too overconfident in my ability to bounce back easily. While I will beat this, it is a challenge. I have good days and some pretty bad ones as well. The one thing that keeps me going though is each one of you. While I haven’t been able to respond to each of you personally, I do read the comments made every day and it makes me so grateful to have such a support system. When people tell me in posts, texts or comments to let them know if I need anything, I know they mean it. I am starting to cry while I type this so I hope it continues to make sense. I apologize that I haven’t been in contact with some of you as much as I wish I would have. I hope to change that when I am better. I have been very wrapped up in work and trying to be the best father I can be. Avery is my world, and I will do anything for her. I wish I could give each of you a huge hug. Please know that if you guys ever need anything, I will be there for you. I am in debt to each and every one of you. I love all of you, and know that I am being sincere when I say I have great memories with each of you. When I read a comment or a text from someone, I also think about a great memory I have had with them. That is what is getting me through this. I will kick this cancer’s ass with all of your prayers and support. I am a long way from being done with this battle but I draw inspiration from you guys, whether you know it or not. PLEASE keep praying for me and supporting me, as I draw so much strength from it. I love you, and thank you with every fabric of my being.

  3. Brandon,

    Hang in there buddy, I know you are going to kick this. Anyone who can put up with the Tiger’s performance in the SEC is strong enough to beat a little thing like cancer, not to make light of what you are going through. Still praying for your continued recover. Missing you here at work.

  4. Give yourself whatever gifts of time and rest you need to feel better and know that you’re surrounded by caring thoughts and prayers and heartfelt wishes. You have so many who care. Rest easy. Get well.
    Aunt Sharyn and Uncle Michael ??❤️?

  5. I’m so glad you see the support you have & know it’s real. I’m not going anywhere & I doubt anyone else is either. We are with you for the long haul. I’m reading every update. Keep them coming. All the best.
