Medical help for Cecila

After numerous doctor and ER visits over the last 2 years finally a doctor has listened and testing was done on Cecila for her symptoms. Imaging has shown she has a tumor that is growing at the base of her brain. It is not currently known the extent of what this tumor has done to her but it is wrapped around her optic nerve and a main artery as well as having caused bone to actually be prevented from developing properly because it has been pushed on by the tumor for so long. It is currently a little over 2.5cm in size and the doctors have to do a biopsy to be able to identify the exact type of tumor it is and then the proper course of treatment will be administered. From what the doctors can tell the tumor is not cancerous. The only way to tell exactly what type it is is to have the biopsy.

After Cecila's mom just having surgery in December the family is still trying to get on track again, since Rachel (her mom) cannot work at this moment due to the surgery. They have to find other means of income to pay for these medical treatments done on Cecila. The family does have insurance but it does not cover nearly enough of the medical bills for the family. We are asking for any amount of donation that you can give.

At the moment the doctors in Redmond, OR are doing everything that they can, but Cecila is having to be sent to OHSU for further treatment which will cause the family more debt because of the transportation, staying, and medical bills. The family owes over $11,900 currently and the bills are continuing to pile up.

Every dime at this moment will help reach the goal of getting Cecila the medical treatment that is needed.
