May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month - May 2023 Newsletter
JOURNAL DAY - May, 2022
Go Gray in May for Brain Tumor/Cancer awareness 🧠🎗 Breckin's 2nd chemo round took place in the ICU a year ago ⤵️ A total of eight days.... This ICU round, a child a few doors down passed. My wife, Shannon, didn't know until Breckin and they decided to take a walk. The nurses asked Shannon to take him back to the room.... She was confused at first but then saw the wooden box on top of the hospital bed in the hallway. The heaviness in the air could have been been cut with a knife. She never said anything to Breckin but I think he knew. These were extremely hard days 💔
It's been one heck of a year!! We are so grateful for those that have been on this crazy, emotional journey with us. This last year we faced trials and tribulations that tested our marriage and our family. There are things our family went through that I have only shared in person and most likely will keep it that way. It takes time to heal 💗 heal from the things that were lost. But in that loss, so much more was gained. My biggest part of healing is overcoming the triggers. I have not been able to sleep well since all this started. But every day I wake from the small amount of sleep I get, I wake with gratitude knowing I have all four children alive and healthy under one roof. As much as the girls bickering causes me to lose my mind at times, I'm grateful I get to be home with them and not be living in another state 404 miles away. **This morning as I was having my coffee when this FB post came up in my memories. It was the first time for me to go through and read the comments. As I read them, I hearted 💗 them .... I guess it's my way of saying Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the prayers and uplifting comments!! We love you all 😘 - Shannon Gallagher

Many of you have asked what is that in the corner of the room?
It's Infrared Light Therapy that we got for Breckin after his Brain Surgery in 2016 to help speed his healing process.
Is Infrared Light Therapy effective?
Absolutely. NIR polychromatic spectrum - which has been
documented through thousands of fundamental research studies to
analyze its effects on tissue repair, rejuvenation, and pain relief
mechanisms - has been methodically studied since 1965. NIR
photobiomodulation therapy is a non-invasive and highly effective
adjunct therapy in the field of prevention, as well as in the healing of
pressure-related issues such as bed sores and diabetic foot ulcers.
Non-invasive exposure of near-infrared (NIR) light therapy increases
microcirculation and promotes delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the
affected tissue. This optimal healing environment reduces
inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, and stiffness. As the injured
tissue heals and returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is
Cell and Tissue Effects
Medical professionals utilize low level light therapy - which is
designed to lessen pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance lymphatic
drainage - to treat issues associated with:
• Musculoskeletal injuries

• Plantar fasciitis
• Sport injuries
• Ruptured ligament
• Tendon, muscle rips, and strains
