Help Someone With A Brain Tumor, My Daughter

My name is Stephen Payne,

My daughter Lavette Hale passed out at school while teaching and was rushed to the hospital where they found a tumor in her right side of her brain the size of and apple.

Devastation came a over all of us as she underwent a six hour surgery to keep a her alive and not knowing in what condition she would wake up in you can soon see my plea for help. Lavette is a very private  person and has a hard time reaching out but in her words she wanted to also share her condition and if it would help others in there struggle she was willing to share her condition and in turn help her fight for her life.

Prayer goes a along way and she came threw with what the doctors say a miracle. Lavette is a single mother of three young children, ranging from 9-15. As a father I am so proud how she has been so strong to keep her family strong.

At this time we find a financial burden as she has so many obstacles to overcome with chemotherapy and radiation treatments. We need your support to help pay for her medical bills. Insurance covers only so much and bills have begun to come in. In this the funds would greatly help her continue in her treatments and to help pay for her bills as she will be out of work for quite a long time, any amount given is greatly appreciated.

As a father I am deeply saddened by this but feel I must find a way to help her now more than ever. She is my life, my dearest daughter and I plead for your help. I wish I could just make this all go away but it's here and I am up late praying on how to hold her threw this and how as her daddy I can make it better.

My gratitude to you is immense at this time as you don't know me but I know there is my daughter that needs your help. She has so much to share with this world and especially her students at "school "  my heart is full of gratitude  and love for everyone that has come together for us. My eyes cry out at how great everyone has shown love for her.  My wife and family thank you as well as the extended family for your support.
