Dear Melissa,
My heart hurts for you and your family. I am praying for Brant right now that his body can heal and fight off the infection that has hit him so hard. Melissa, you are obviously surrounded by so many people that love you very, very much. I pray you, Brant and Will get some peaceful time together.

Aloha,
Kathleen

He can still pull through this, I agree with Kathy, miracles do happen, and he can't go yet! let him know we're all praying for him, and not to lose hope! Infections suck, and I hope the antibiotics kick on in! I'm so sorry for all this, but there is hope still. Your family are in my prayers, Melissa! Let him know we're rooting for him!

Hugsss!

I have followed Brant's journal and Melissa's postings on the caregivers site and their battle with the monster called rectal cancer. As young as Brant is and a physician on top of that he has never caught a break dealing with his rectal cancer. I join the others in sending prayers that Brant be able to regain his strength and spend some time at home with his beautiful wife Melissa and handsome young son Will. Hang in there Brant, miracles do happen and you are certainly due yours. - Tina

for Brant, that the antibiotics will kick in and he will regain the strength to continue his fearsome battle. Hold on tight to the hope that has sustained you this far. It is the season for miracles.
Warmly,

We're holding you & your family in the light and focusing our thoughts on a positive outcome to this situation. If you get this message and would like some company or would like me to bring some decent food over, I would feel good to be useful that way. I'm self-employed, so I can be somewhat flexible with my schedule. I know how it feels to sit and hang out at Stanford Hospital (and the food there is only ok). I gave Ryan my cell phone and email address, but I'll pm both to you as well.
Hang in there -

Love,
Tashina

I am so sorry for this turn of events. I hope that Brant will fight this infection & be feeling better soon. I love the expression that Adrian uses "we are holding you & your family in the light". You all have been through a lot fighting this disease & the travel in addition. God bless, and know I am thinking of you.

I've been keeping up with their story through caringbridge, as well, and it broke my heart to read that Brant is now on hospice care. I've been praying for them and will continue to do so.

So sad, Brant passed away this morning. So hard to take when another one of "us" passes....

Deepest sympathy,

Read his whole blog this morning, and am saddened that this took him so quickly, I am in tears now, and my heart goes out to his son and wife, and family and friends. I didn't know Brant, but you don't have to "know" someone to feel for them and what they went through. They will all be in my prayers, and thoughts, and know he is an angel now.

Hugsss!

I just saw Adrian's new post stating that Brant has passed away. I'm so saddened to think how quickly it took him over the past few days. I keep fighting back the tears. As others just said, we're all in the "family" here. We can empathize with the situation since of course, it hits very, very close to home for all of us.
Melissa- you, Will, and the rest of your extended family are in my prayers for being able to cope and have peace through the grieving process.
My heart aches for you.
