Stefan has been a leader in the community and now a public voice through experiencing the heartbreaking disease that his thirteen year old daughter had to endure.
Stefan has initiated the start of Cancer Response Team, Inc. to help families cope and to give hope after receiving a diagnosis that their child has cancer. He understands the emotional and physical pain that is experienced by the entire family when a child is diagnosed with cancer. Every individual deals with circumstances and situations in different ways, but experiencing that moment of terrifying shock, feeling of helplessness and disbelief that comes with a cancer diagnosis is indescribable, and something that no family should have to endure.
Before Stefan’s daughter, Ashley, passed from astrocytoma brain cancer, he made a promise to Ashley and committed that he will do everything in his power to help make a significant change for families whose children are affected by cancer.
