Help Ursula Beat Brain Cancer

Ursula's fight with a rare type of Brain cancer began in 1991.  At that time after a biopsy and complications that followed, she pulled through with the support of her friends, family and a great group of doctors.  After several months that eventually turned into years of healing and rehabilitation, the tumor was said to have gone into "spontaneous remission".  The doctor's watched her diligently and five years later gave her a clean bill of health.

Unfortunately, the tumor resurfaced roughly 15 years later while she was in her second trimester with her daughter, who is now 8 years old.  Due to the strain and problems that were brought on by the brain tumor, Ursula was given no choice but to leave her job so that she was able to take care of herself and newborn daughter. She is very fortunate for the love and support that she has been given by her wonderful husband as well as family and friends. This support helps keep her going everyday.

Her current treatment along with accummalting and recurring medical bills are very overwhelming to say the least. 

Ursula and I have been friends since the age of 5 years old.  We have been through pretty much anything and everything together.
Her positive attitude and determination leaves me speechless.
I wanted to reach out to anyone and everyone to help fundraise as much as possible to help pay off and cover some future medical bills.

Any amount will help and I am grateful and honored to be able to start this campaign "Help Ursula Beat Brain Cancer".
