Cyndy's Smile

Cyndy was diagnosed with pleurisy/pneumonia in May of last year.
She became seriously ill and couldn't walk.She had an MRI and discovered that she had a mass wrapped around her brain stem.No doctor would operate on her because of the mass's location.She was airlifted to the U of Mn hospital with private nurses in attendance.She had surgery,put into ICU,again with private nurses.She then had to use a walker and had IVS for 8 weeks,2x/day.In August of 2017 a drain was put in her lung .She had to measure this twice/day.
Her iron levels went down so she was put on iron transfusions.An endoscopy found a bleeding ulcer,which is now being treated.The medications are very expensive,even with insurance.She was once more put into ER due to high blood pressure. 
Doctors appointments continue and her bills are piling up to unmanageable levels.
Please help us help our dear friend,who always wears a smile,no matter the circumstances! She would very much appreciate anything you can give.
Thank You!
