Jeff Nepola is a 36 year old loving husband and father. He and his wife, Danielle Budka-Nepola, have a 2 year old daughter and a brand new baby boy. In October 2012, after Danielle witnessed odd behavior and took him to the ER, Jeff was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent surgery to have it removed. Upon removal, it was found to be cancerous and doctors determined a second brain surgery was necessary to remove what remained. This surgery took place just 3 months later in January 2013. At this time, the doctors found that the cancer was stage 4 (Glioblastoma). The very next month, February 2013, Danielle gave birth to their second child, a beautiful baby boy, and began her maternity leave. That same month, Jeff began 6 weeks of intensive chemotherapy and radiation and, due to the side effects, was unable to keep working. This month, while trying to recover from the debilitiating effects of his treatment, Jeff also began his yearlong treatment of one week of chemotherapy per month.
At this time, Jeff has applied for permanent disability, but it will be several months before the process is complete. Jeff and Danielle are blessed to have the support of family and friends in their area who are assisting with the children and dinners. However, with one limited income, they are struggling to pay their mortgage and monthly bills in addition to added medical expenses. I believe we can make a difference for their family by sharing this site with all of our family and friends. Even a small donation will have a positive impact on thier lives and the lives of their beautiful babies.
