Carlo's Brain Surgery

Never thought we'd be here...but life happens. Last year, the love of my life, my husband, Carlo, became very ill. After a devastating grand-mal seizure, emergency, and hospital stays, he was diagnosed with a golf-ball sized brain tumor behind his left eye occipital bone. Surgery successfully removed the tumor and we are hopeful for full recovery within one year.

We have exhausted our savings and maxed our credit cards toward our out-of-pocket costs for our neurosurgeons, anesthesiologist, hospital medical personnel, hospital stays, neurologist, and medications. We now have not an extra dime toward the remaining balance of $19,000. We are in crisis mode at this point.

We have great family support--they have helped more than they could afford. Our need has just become urgent. My job as Carlo's wife and partner is to do all I can to alleviate this heavy, stressful burden so he may be free to heal and continue on his recovery path. Thank you for your consideration and help. If you are unable to donate, we understand; but please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, and share this as you see fit. Anything is SO appreciated and we are blessed by it more than we can ever express!
