Belinda's Brain Tumor Surgery and Treatment

Hello everyone,

My name is Heather and I am raising money for my sister Belinda. She lives in Nairobi, Kenya.  She is 27 years old.  She is a middle child and my husband, Benja, is her older brother.  She has a younger sister named India. She lives in Kenya with her mother, Teresa, and younger sister. She is the sweetest most kind person.  She cares so much about everyone.  To see her going through this is truly heartbreaking.

On Sunday morning, Nov 17th 2019, Belinda started convulsing.  Her sister, India, took her to the emergency room with the help of some friends.  After two CT scans and an MRI it was determined that Belinda has a tumor in her brain that was causing swelling in her frontal lobe and if left untreated would be fatal in days.  Wednesday, November 20th they operated and removed a part of the glioma to relieve the swelling and run tests on it to see what type of treatment she needs.  She pulled through the surgery just fine and is now recovering in the ICU. We are waiting to hear what type of treatment will be needed for the tumor.

We will keep updating the page as we find out more. We are asking for financial help to cover the costs of her surgery and treatment. We also appreciate your kind words and prayers.
