Have you ever had the privilege of knowing a guy that brings the best (and corniest) humor to your life? That guy for us is Steve – father of two terrific young men Ben and Dan, father-in-law to sweet Kylie, husband to Suzanne – always laughing and grateful for his humor and attitude toward life; he is son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and friend to countless. However, Steve’s humor was tested when he was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma in February, 2020. At least 90% of the tumor was removed in February at UCSF. Steve completed chemo and radiation after surgery and is now doing maintenance chemo each month as well as therapy to include speech, occupational and physical therapies at KUMC and other Kansas City metro providers. Despite setbacks of bouncing critical labs, blood clots, recent stroke (and great recovery!), and Covid times we all navigate, Steve continues to fight with humor. His medical team still laughs (groans?) at his jokes. Steve sports a Superman costume for special events (maybe its not a costume!). He exercises daily, dabbles with his gift for cooking, and is an incredible and selfless inspiration to his family and friends. Steve meets each day with faith, positivity and hope. He and his wife never stop exploring new and helpful research possibilities. Steve IS: Courage, Determination, Faith, Grace, and Love. He is our comedian. He is our Role Model. He is our Superman.
