Bryce Garst of Mesa Arizona, was diagnosed with a brain tumor when he was only 3 years old. Bryce's parents, Charlene and Chris, were devastated. They could not bear the thought of losing their son. They wondered how their other son, Eric, who was 7 years old, could face the possibility of losing his best friend?
Bryce had surgery to remove the tumor. However, the tumor regrew, and the doctors offered no hope.
Charlene and Chris took Bryce to Dr. Stanislaw R. Burzynski for antineoplaston therapy. They drove 22 hours to Houston, Texas. Dr. Burzynski's treatment worked, and today, Bryce is a healthy 6 year old.
Because the Garst's health care insurance refused to pay for the treatment that was working, Chris held a garage sale. Word spread, neighbors flocked to the sale, and some kind persons offered to hold garage sales of their own for Bryce. An 85-year-old woman held so many sales that she raised $27,000.
