Help Find a Cure for Brain Cancer

Hello My name is Tina Monelli and I am doing a Fundraiser to help find a Cure for Brain Cancer.  My Mom Carrie Ramljak was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma in Nov 2012 and since then she has had 3 Brain surgeries to remove the brain tumor.  Her 1st surgery went well and she recovered quick and 2nd Surgery she did well also but was a little more tired.  This Last Surgery that she had on March 7 was a lot different than the first 2 and she is having a harder time recovering. She came home on March 30 and needs care at home as she is not able to move around as much and my dad takes care of her as well as the rest of her family.  She does have Physical therapy and nurses come check on her and they help her with making her stronger, but can be difficult at times for her.  She is a fighter for sure and has started Chemo again because the tumor is growing back.  My mom is not the type of person that gives up she wants to try everything to get better and has that Will.  My mom is a very special lady and cares about everyone and wants to always help others.  We will be having a Fund Raiser for this cause on Saturday May 31 from 3-7pm at Addison VFW Hall 446 W. Lake St., Addison, IL, 60101. We want to help others win this Fight!  Almost all of what is donated will go to Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute and we will save a little for my mom to help with care at home.  She always gave to others and I know she would want us to do this to help find a cure.  Thank you for anything you can help with we appreciate it.
