Help Diane Fine With Medical Related Expenses

Our dear friend Diane Fine had brain surgery on April 19th   to remove a large, benign tumor called a meningioma. The tumor was the size of a large egg, which caused significant swelling and put pressure on the brain, resulting in extreme pain. Thankfully, the tumor was fully and successfully removed, though the displacement of the brain was large enough to push parts of the brain past the midline.  The healing process will be long.
 
The surgical team explained to Diane the extensive nature of her surgery.  They also emphasized the importance of rest. Long-term complications are much more likely if she returns to work and life responsibilities too quickly. She needs to plan for a very long, gradual recovery. If her upcoming neurological assessment in three months shows enough healing, even then, she should only attempt a small a fraction of her typical work load. 
 
Any financial support would be greatly appreciated. Diane, a single mom, has a part-time job at Cornell University, owns a yoga studio in Ithaca, NY (Fine Spirit Studio), and leads yoga sessions for groups & individuals. Loss of income from being self-employed, travel expenses, co-pays, and hospital bills are already adding up far beyond the typical tight, single-income budget. The unknown of how long the recovery will take and the extent of the financial impact only adds to the concern.
 
All the ways in which you express your care and support, be it through financial help, thoughts, prayers, or household tasks, all make a positive difference and Diane is grateful for it all!
