Darlene's Parathyroid Surgery

I have launched this gofundme in hopes that the people close to my mother and I, and others with kind hearts, will help us meet our goal. Two weeks ago, my mom, (Darlene Crouse) was diagnosed with having a tumor on her parathyroid gland, in close proximity to her coritid artery. The surgeons also believe there is more than one. They can also tell that the tumor/tumors have been growing, undiagnosed, since 2008...WOW!

Due to the location of the tumors and severity of the surgery, we need to have the top surgeon in the world perform the operation. The top surgeons are located in the Norman Parathyroid Center in Tampa, FL. Unfortunately, insurance covers only a little amount of the costs occurred and the majority of funds will come from friends, family, fundraisers, and a benefit. The details of the benefit will be disclosed as soon as they are ironed out.

I want to thank each and every one of you for making this a possibility. This journey has been a very rough road, but there is light at the end of the tunnel and I believe we will make it through it! Thank you all for your love and support...We love you all!
