Two days before her birthday, my wonderful and beautiful niece, Melodie, passed out at home and was found unconscious by her husband, Harrison. She was rushed to the hospital in Reno, NV where she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The doctors immediately flew her to Stanford Healthcare Center in Palo Alto, CA on a medical plane. She spent her birthday in a specialized hospital room preparing for an 8-hour long brain surgery. While the scariest part is over, she is expected to have follow-up treatments, check-ups, and procedures in the near future.
With all that being said, there is an obviously overwhelming cost associated with this medical care. Please, if at all possible, consider supporting Melodie and Harrison during this difficult time.
