God has led me to start this GoFundMe page for a friend that is very near and dear to my heart. Allyson was diagnosed with a brain tumor back in September 2018. She has seen several specialists in the area (Greenville and Charleston, SC) and is scheduled to see a specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota on October 24, 2018. Still to this day, no one has been able to diagnose the tumor/mass that was found in the motor center of her left temporal lobe without a more invasive procedure being involved. Treatment options that have been mentioned include 1) needle biopsy or 2) craniotomy which is more invasive with more risks involved. Allyson, her husband, Daniel, and her parents, Melanie and Calvin Young, will be making the week long trip to Minnesota at the end of the month to see several health care specialists to figure out where to go from here.
As you all know, medical bills accumulate FAST and they're EXPENSIVE. Over the last month and a half, Allyson has been seen in the ER, was admitted to the hospital for a couple of nights, has had LOTS of blood work done, has had scan after scan of her brain, abdomen, pelvis, chest, neck, etc to rule out malignancies, whether it was by MRI, CT scan, or PET scan. And those are not cheap either! Any medical procedure that Allyson will have in the near future will also be added to this ever growing list of bills. Don't forget, she and Daniel have two precious boys, George (6) and Brady (4), that they love very much and have to make sure they are taken care of while being away at appointments, all the while maintaining two independent businesses (Allyson's dance shop and Daniel's body shop).
The beauty, grace and strength of this woman that I’m so lucky to call my friend is one to be admired! Please share this with anyone you know that would be willing to donate because every little bit helps! And if you know Allyson, she would NEVER ask for this help.......but she deserves it. She deserves this and so much more! I pray that my dear friend be completely healed. What a story she will have!!!
