My name is Jen. That's me, there in the picture. The big, grinning, momma of two.
This March, I was diagnosed with a meningioma. It's a non-malignant tumor, which while not cancer, is still wreaking havoc on my brain and my vision.
(That white blobby thing on the right? In my brain by the P?? That's the tumor...)
We're awaiting word on the official date for surgery, though right now it's booked for June 25th, 2013. While this sounds simple and straightforward, the tumor is in an awkward position, and is currently growing into a major artery in my brain.
The surgeon will not be able to cut all of the tumor out. Meaning that after my surgery, I will be undergoing chemo and radiation treatments to help stop the growth of the tumor and shrink it, if possible.
All of this means LOTS of driving for my husband, lots of time off and probably a fair amount of time away from my children. While we're trying to get my husband some paid time off, it's not going to be enough to cover all of our usual bills, extra gas and expenses while we travel back and forth.
So, desperate, and out of any other kind of ideas, we're turning to the power of the Internet for help! Any little bit you can help with would be amazing!
Feel free to contact me for more information or if you'd like to help in any other way!
