My name is Tieler, and Brandon has given his blessing for me to provide this latest post. Last March, Brandon and I sat down to talk about his story and from that Brandnu Possibilities was born. Togther we’ve worked to update the blog and share his message with so many of you. Little did I know what would come of it… but God certainly knew.
So I’m bringing greetings from Brandon. I visited with him yesterday and despite the challenges and setbacks, he’s still smiling (photo). These days, it’s a little difficult for him to write, type and speak. But believe me when I tell you, his light is still shining bright, and those of you who know Brandon will agree, it speaks on its own. Continue reading →
Dearest Friends, Family and Loved Ones,
Life and all of it’s possibilities, obstacles and blessings is something we all take for granted. What if you received a threat to your life before you even had a chance to live it? Brandon Bennings, an amazingly talented and giving young man in his 20’s has a huge fight ahead of him against a massive brain tumor. The costs for his treatments total more than $450,000, and if he does not receive his treatments, he will lose his life.
You may not personally know Brandon, but I am asking that you trust me and remember how precious life is! People die every day, but if you have the chance to extend a life for one person, why not take that advantage?
Please, if you are able, make a small donation to help Brandon win this fight against his tumor. Even a small donation of $20 (of course larger donations are welcome) will make a difference. No amount is too small to help the cause.

In Love, Hope and Blessings,
A group of friends have gotten together to launch a fundraising campaign, “100 Days to Save a Life.” I am humbled at their efforts and support since my diagnosis with brain cancer. The campaign began earlier this month and will end on May 12, 2013, which marks my two year fight.
Our goal is $400,000. It is lofty. It is ambitious. And yet it is the total cost of my medical and living expenses for just about six months. Just one of the cancer drugs I must take to stay alive totals $64,000 a month.
Whatever we raise, I am grateful. As much a blessing are the friends and loved ones I have. With their support and God’s grace, I continue my fight.
Thank you for whatever you contribute – be it a monetary gift, sharing this post with others, prayers, encouraging words and love.
A friend loves at all times and a brother is born for a time of adversity.
An instance the other day involving one of my neighbors got me thinking. I was outside, getting some fresh air and was taking a break from walking. He was on his patio also getting some fresh air. He got my attention and shared some words with me. He said that he had seen me from time to time getting out the car some days and taking my walks on others. Continue reading →
I have started taking a new type of medicine this week. On June 11 I had an MRI done, which I guess you could say I’ve grown accustomed to. On June 14 I had a doctor’s appointment to get the results. Just like many other doctor’s appointments I’ve had in the past year. This time however they found growth on my brain stem.
