Every Superhero Needs a Sidekick @ Las Vegas | Nevada | United States

My favorite superhero can’t fly, can’t outrun a train and has never been bitten by a radioactive spider. His name is Elliot Cohen. He was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) when he was three months old. TSC causes tumor growth on various organs. Elliot’s tumors are on his brain, causing daily seizures and developmental delays. He’s undergone multiple brain surgeries to remove these tumors.

His amazing family joins him in his fight. Uncle Michael and Aunt Meredith offer their support every day. So do his cousins, Josh and Allison. Josh even helped raise funds himself for his Bar Mitzvah. But his super parents, Marc and Susan, are with him for every step.

And there’s another hero. My wife, Stacey. On 11/17 she’ll be running in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Las Vegas. She’s been training for months. And she’s running for a reason—to raise money to help the important research into this disease. No donation is too small. Please, join our fight to help our hero.
