RANDOLPH, NJ- Former Randolph Board of Ed Member Chrissie Aulenbach, and husband Dave ( Former Randolph HS Vice Principal ) recently brought their young elementary school age son Henry to the hospital as he was suffering from terrible headaches. Henry was found to have a brain tumor as well as some spots along his spine. He already has had surgery to remove his brain tumor. Chrissie and her husband and working with the doctors on getting a formal diagnosis, but based on the tests they have run over the last few days the oncologist is quite certain that Henry is dealing with Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer. 

You may know the Aulenbach family from around Randolph. You may recognize Chrissie from her time on the Randolph Board of Education, or maybe your kids graduated high school with her twin boys in 2018 (both are currently freshman in college). She may even have tutored your child in trumpet. Or maybe you recognize Dave Aulenbach from his time as Vice Principal at Randolph high school or as a music teacher in our school system. Needless to say, they have been an integral part of our community for many years. They recently downsized to a townhouse about 30 minutes away, but Randolph will always be their home. 

Chrissie describes her son in this way "Henry is a wonderful boy with a lot of inner strength. He loves to be a good friend and helper and loves making others happy. He likes bossing around his older brothers and buttering up his dad! He's as sweet in real life as he is in pictures."
