I am having a brain tumor surgery on October 18.   
I was not ready for this sudden crisis and need your help, and I need it fast: the surgery is this coming  Thursday!! Although I monitored for 14 years this meningioma tumor growing slowly, last MRI showed a dangerous enlargment (6X5X3 cm) that cannot be treated with radiation.  I completely lost my balance,  I am falling  every other day, and  when I am walking in the house I am holding on walls and furniture. Because of my age I've tried to postpone this dangerous surgery, but I cannot live anymore as a crippled person. Please, help me with the treatment cost ( post -op, daily therapy, rehabilitation after surgery, and the co-pay of costly  specialists visits). Medicare pays only  80%  of this scary craniotomy, and the in home care therapy and alternative treatments are not covered at all.
