Help make Jeff Winterberg cancer free

Jeff

Jeff Winterberg, a beloved musician, photographer, friend & family member, was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer in late 2011. Since that time he has begun a rigorous course of treatment which started with surgery to his brain in February of 2012. Diagnosed with a medulloblastoma, this form of brain cancer typically manifests in children, only affecting less than 2% of adults. Because of the rarity in adults, little is known about the long term effects or prognosis. Jeff has been fortunate enough to be receiving significant care through Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and his doctors have high hopes for his recovery. In the meantime, his early treatment has been hard on his body. Between the surgery and first 6 weeks of radiation mixed with chemotherapy, his sight, speech, and motor functions have been affected, limiting his abilities. Beginning in early June, he will start another cycle of chemotherapy (six rounds) in hopes of destroying any remaining cancer cells.
Jeff has a long road of recovery ahead of him beyond the 6 rounds of chemotherapy such as extensive physical therapy, and life-long tests to monitor the cancer.

Everyone at BrooklynVegan wishes a quick recovery to Jeff, who in addition to being a photographer (seen on BV here and here), is also the author of Rat-a-Tat-Tat Birds and, as stated above, a musician. You might know him as a member of Antioch Arrow and Coptic Light. If you can, contribute to his fundraiser and receive some of his photographs in exchange for your donation.
