Help support Shawn Mastrantonio, our VHL Warrior.
Our beloved VHL Warrior, Shawn Mastrantonio, needs our help. He just received devastating news that he has to undergo his third brain surgery as he continues his fight against this rare cancer. He has a tumor that has grown drastically and is pushing against his brain stem. Additionally he has developed a cyst that must also be removed. He is immediately heading to Columbus, Ohio to undergo this surgery with his specialist.
This costly surgery is minimally covered by his insurance and will have to be paid largely out of pocket.
Shawn has been and continues to be a strong and humble man who inspires us all in the way he chooses to fight this disease, the way he uses his running as an educational platform for VHL (Von Hippel-Landau), and the way he lives his life.
We are reaching out to anyone who would like to make a donation to Shawn and his wife, Kim, to help them with the mounting medical expenses so that they can focus on his recovery and healing.
