My brother, David, was adopted. Based on his adoption file and papers preserved by his adoptive parents, we have determined his birth mother is Ellen Mae Kaplan, married to Leon H. Janus, daughter of Arthur Kaplan and Freida Libman; one brother, Earl Harris Janus.
My brother, David, was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma (cancer) last year. He made an attempt to contact his birth mother last year and never had a reply, one way or the other.
If anyone knows this family, maybe someone could let us know. My brother, at the very least, would like to know his medical history and who his father is.
He is devastated and latest prognosis is that he is no longer in remission. We are resigned to loosing him but would much appreciate any help in making contact with his birth family before it's too late.
Thank you for any help you are able to provide.
