Help My Sister Before She Goes Blind

My name is Brigitte I’m 50 years old and my younger sister, Maricris, is 49 years old. She is the most loyal, hardworking and generous person I know, always helping others; now she’s the one who needs help. 2 weeks ago, Maricris was diagnosed with a large pituitary tumor that is damaging her vision— she’s already lost 50% of her vision in both eyes. If she doesn’t get operated on soon, she will go blind. The issue is, she doesn’t have the money for the operation, and without health insurance, the procedure is extremely expensive. If she doesn’t have the money by September 28th, her operation will be cancelled and her vision is at high stake. The tumor is growing bigger and bigger each day and the longer the operation is put off, the more the tumor may involve the brain. Her optic nerve is already damaged. I am appealing to your generous hearts, please help my sister. Thank you!
