Getting Rid of Karen's Dumb Tumor

Around 8 months ago, my mom (Karen Lange) was diagnosed with a meningioma tumor in the front in her frontal lobe that was deemed benign and harmless unless it grew.

You may want to avoid spoilers, but you can probably guess that it grew in the interim and will now have to be removed before it gets even more harmful/larger. Her surgery is on Monday, October 16th at Jefferson in Philly.

Since developing this tumor, Karen has been having constant shakes, terrible headaches, and a weird obsession with The Big Bang Theory (not sure if that one's related, but in my medical opinion, it totally is).

My family and I are starting this gofundme to help offset the medical bills and time off of work; right now it's an estimated 3 months. Anything you can give would be so so damn appreciated.

Because gofundme's are usually very dry, here's a horrific video of me the last time I did a call-to-arms for my mom; getting her on the Rosie O'Donnell show in 2002. I did not succeed at that time; help me in succeeding this time.
