Help Crystal Boulanger Fight Rare Cancer


Please help my Niece who has a very rare tumor that has been found to have cancer. Crystal has no medical insurance and mounting medical bills. My Niece, who is 23 years young and a graduate from the criminal justice program, was working on her Master's degree. When on October 15th 2013, woke up to having three major seizures. The first one of which her mom Linda heard and woke up and went to Crystal's side her dad and younger brother followed.Finding out later that morning in the hospital, that she had a mass on her brain. They were not sure what kind of mass it was. After many tests, they still needed to do brain surgery to biopsy the mass, to be sure of what it was. On October 17th 2013, the surgery was done and they ended up taking a tennis ball size of her brain out. After the surgery she woke up to being paralyzed on her left side. As days went on she slowly progressed to getting movement back on her left side. Recently finding out after many tests she has a very rare tumor. A very small percent of tumors in the brain, they find are this kind. This tumor has tested positive for cancer. Five times a week, for seven weeks, she will have to undergo radiation. After radiation she will have to proceed with chemo treatment for six months. They say, they are not positive if the treatment will work because the type of tumor she has, is so rare and they do not have enough trials (research) on it . The medical bills are mounting on; my sister Linda and brother in law Craig are trying to take care of her to the best of their ability. Her Brother Michael who is a senior in high school is a great source of comfort to her they are like velcro.With all the worry about their daughter/Sister as well as medical bills they are under a lot of stress. I am asking you,all if you can help and contribute any amount to help my Niece, I would truly be grateful and appreciate everything you have done.
