Ashley’s recovery fund

Hello friends and family  
Never in a million years I would have thought that I needed to do this. This has been an extremely difficult year for all of us, that is no doubt. If you know me, asking for help is the last thing I do in any situation, but I have reached a point where I have no choice. 

In July of this year I started having debilitating migraines to the point where I couldn’t see, I couldn't drive. I was nauseous and vomiting constantly, I couldn’t work or be the mom that I wanted to be. An MRI revealed a 1cm tumor on my pituitary gland in my brain. During these past few months I have been out on intermittent leave from work, going in when I can, which unfortunately isn’t very often. I’m still in a lot of pain, none of the medications I have been given have helped. I have to take it day by day and very slowly. I have been relying on family to help with bills and we are even behind with that help. 

I will be going in for surgery on November 4th to remove the tumor and I will be in the hospital for 3-5 days after surgery and will be in recovery, unable to work, for 4-6 weeks afterwards. Due to the pandemic and my cut in hours earlier this year, I have no sick time or PTO to use for this time off. With Bretts income alone, we do not qualify for any state help or low
income help, but we are still in desperate needfor help. 

This money would be going towards bills between now and the end of my recovery time. It would go towards extra childcare expenses and medical bills as well. 

My heart is so heavy as I write this, but I know that it’s the right thing to do for my family and I at this time. Thank you for your time, we would appreciate prayers and good vibes/thoughtssent our way.  

God bless
