Malign Brain tumor Surgery 4 Lucy

My mom is in Peru and has just discovered that she has a brain tumor the size of a fist and excess fluids around her brain, both causing large pressure on the front of her brain. She cannot fly back to the US because of the pressure changes associated with flying. She has health insurance in the US but not in Peru. She has to pay out of pocket to receive her brain surgery in Peru in order to return to the US for cancer treatment. Doctor's in the US never discovered her brain illness and thus she didn't know the danger of flying to Peru. It is likely that the pressure changes from flying exacerbated her illness leading to her current hospitalization. My mom really needs our help and anything counts. Please, please help a great woman whom has always helped others in their times of need. She needs us. Thank you so much for any assistance you are able to offer her.

Spanish:
El día 12 de julio mi mamá fue de emergencia al hospital por dolores de cabeza, en esos momentos la mandaron de vuelta a casa diciendo que su problema era una migraña, el 17 de Julio tuvo que viajar a Lima para visitar a mi hermana mayor y el 20 la tuvieron que internar de nuevo en el hospital para descubrir que el dolor de cabeza se debía a un tumor cerebral y que ya no podía arriesgarse a viajar una vez más por el edema que se desarrolló alrededor del cerebro. Mi mama ahora se encuentra internada en el hospital Javier Prado, sin seguro médico, sin poder costear los gastos hospitalarios, ahora necesita de tu ayuda para poder proceder a cirujia. Por favor cualquier ayuda es agradecida.
