Friends Rally Online For Nesbitt family During Cancer Fight
Jan. 24, 2012
Loyola University Maryland assistant women's soccer coach Dave Nesbitt and his family are raising money for their son, Marc, in his fight against cancer through social media.
Here is an excerpt from the story in the Baltimore Sun on Marc and how his brother, Matt, is working to raise money for Marc's treatment.
"What began as a younger brother railing against "the Man" has morphed into a Facebook fundraising phenomenon that has buoyed his older brother in the health battle of a lifetime.
Six months ago, at age 40, Marc Nesbitt, the elder of two sons of Columbia soccer coach Dave Nesbitt, was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a rare type of brain tumor that is primarily found in children and very seldom seen in adults.
Left with little use of his left arm and hand, weakness in his left leg and double vision, Marc had to quit his job as a video game producer and stop driving. When Matt Nesbitt learned that it would cost $10,000 to transport his brother back and forth from his home in Jersey City, N.J., to get treatment at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, he was enraged.
Matt began sharing details of his brother's predicament with friends, and that's when he hit on a plan of action. He decided to channel his anger against what he views as a broken system into a way for people to donate online to a transportation fund."
