Dawn spoke to the doctor before the surgery and this is what she said:
The mass is inoperable, so they are removing the bone from the back of her skull to allow the brain room to swell. They may be able to treat with chemo and radiation, but we won't know for sure until they determine what the mass is. We will know more after the biopsy.
There are many things to consider in helping this family. Reilly has a baby girl, Morgan, who is currently being taken care of by Reilly's brother, Neil and his wonderful partner Paty. Reilly will also need help with transportation and housing costs away from home in order to get better. Time off work for family members as they help in Reilly's care is essential, but can be stressful financially.
Let's help out all of them so that they can concentrate on Reilly's support, treatment, and getting her well so that she can continue on with her beautiful baby, Morgan!
