Brain Surgery for Rachel Hood

Rachel, a loving mother to 6 and grandmother to 15, has recently been diagnosed with two meningioma brain tumors. These tumors are not cancerous but are still growing and doing severe damage to both her vision and equilibrium and are in urgent need of removal. The seizures, vision loss, and dizziness are affecting every aspect of her life and have begun preventing her from enjoying her grandchildren, performing work, serving in her church, and even basic daily activities. Rachel has always been one of the most loving and giving people you could ever meet. The Doctors are very optimistic that if she has the needed surgery her condition will improve. Unfortunately, the slow onset of many of Rachel’s symptoms have left her in a state where she has lost her insurance before realizing the severity of what has affecting her and the surgeries needed to remove the tumors push into the 7-figure range.  Through the use of programs and options available to her she will be able to have these surgeries at a more reasonable (but still significant) cost but will be left with some major medical bills and unable to work for 6 months while recovering and being treated with radiation therapy after the surgery.  Any Financial help you are able to provide to meet the down payments to allow her to start this necessary surgery would be greatly appreciated. Even if you cannot donate Rachel can use all the prayers you can send.
