Warrior’s For Silvia Thomas

This page is being set up on behalf of Silvia and Jay Thomas. It is with great heartache that they have endured so much over this past year especially Silvia with her health which definitely affects Jay as well being the soul provider for the family on top of enormous medical bills and unexpected surgery cost. I am asking you to pray about how you might be able to help Silvia and Jay financially get through this difficult season. It’s going to be a long road ahead of them and 2017 has been just that. With Gods strength they have pressed on! If we can help lighten the load financially that will be one less thing this family needs to be concerned about. Silvia is scheduled for surgery on Feb 15th with a deductible of 6,000.00 on top of that they are struggling to pay mortgage, and other monthly bills❤️Read Silvia journey below.....I had the blessing of meeting Silvia when I worked at Patches several years ago. Right away she stood out to me because the love she had for the children. Her love for them was genuine. Silvia went back to school to finish her nursing degree. She was determined and driven. She believed she could and she did now that’s A WARRIOR! Silvia was in the process of opening a special needs center, God has put that on hold for such a time as this. In February.. Silvia started having trouble swallowing food and noticed she was choking even on water so her nurse instincts told her to go to an ENT, she had already seen a primary doctor when pretty much they ruled out everything. They found a tumor in her head (a neuroma) and a meningioma. She then saw a neuro surgeon and they decide to operate and remove it but in the meantime, October 13th She got surgery to remove that inflamed lymph node and results came positive with thyroid cancer with metastasis to lymph nodes.. she is unable to work... the struggle begins for the family.. They decide to remove it surgically but it didnt happen because results came back from the lab positive with thyroid cancer stage 3 with metastasis to lymph nodes.October 20th they got devastating news that her little brother just passed away in a motorcycle accident in Ecuador. 48 years old .November 9th she had extensive surgery (complete thyroid removal and complete neck dissection) and removal of all neck lymph nodes..Now she has face paralysis from nerve damage due to extensive neck dissection. Still unable to swallow and chewOut of work and finantial struggles getting worse.Silvia met her Oncologist November 14th and started radiation therapy November 15th. She is home but has to be isolated for 7 days... because she’s radioactive now. In January she needs to have a craniotomy done. More mri's and ctscans to get surgery and more doctors visits to Neuro surgeon. Endocrinologist. ENT and Primary.All the headaches, hearing loss, ear pain and some facial drooping is related to the brain tumors.All money that is raised will help with monthly bills, medical, her brain surgery cost
