Michele Leohner has brain tumors. She has been diagnosed with two benign tumors, occipital neuralgia and chronic migraine syndrome and never complains. As a matter of fact, she was hesitant to allow her friends to create this campaign because she feels others have it worse than her.
Worse than two (2) shots in the brain daily for four months? Worse than taking higher doses of radiation to treat the brain tumors?
What a difference a year can make. Last year Michele had a nice job, her two sons, her health and plenty of people she can call her friends.
You might remember when her son was jumped and in the hospital. She paid a lot of expensive medical bills last year, but never complained on Facebook or to her friends. She never complained about the attackers, she instead prayed for them. YES She PRAYED for her sons attackers!!
Then she fell ill herself, and although you could not tell from the outside, on the inside she has had constant nausea, super-sized headaches and stomach pains.
She is fortunate the tumors are benign, but they are still as dangerous to her health because they are pressed against blood vessels and nerves, which cause her constant headaches.
She has a treatment plan, which is incredibly expensive, but her illness caused something else to happen. She lost her well-paying job and then lost her insurance.
So now Michele has to worry about the medical bills,
worry about rent, worry about utilities, worry about food and worry what
is next in this new chapter in her life....and guess what?
Although she seems alone, she is still not complaining
So now the medical bills are all on her, and her thoughtful sons. One just graduated from college and the other is 17-years-old finishing high school. Their father passed, so Michele is taking this burden by herself.
But she is not alone, she has you...
