On Saturday May 20th 2017, my mom Suzanne informed me that a recent CT scan she had discovered a mass in her brain. On Monday the 22nd, she arrived at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida for further medical insight. They took an MRI there, and from the information and images from the new MRI, the surgical team decided to go straight to the operating room, skipping a biopsy because of the severity of what they saw. Before the tumor was removed, the doctors predicted that the cancer was a Glioblastoma, from which patients receive a prognosis of 12-15 months to live. Surgery was completed on Tuesday May 23rd and due to that surgery, she has lost motor function on the left side of her body. Suzanne is still at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, but will be moving to an inpatient physical therapy treatment center in a few days.
These circumstances have left a huge financial burden on my mom that she is unable to cover alone. Our family is doing everything we can, but are now asking for any assistance we can find in covering these medical bills. Please share this post, we all appreciate any help we can get right now. <3
