Thank you for visiting Cherby's Go Fund me Page.
A little about Cherby Torres: she's 25 and has been married to her loving husband Hector for two years now. She has an incredible faith in God and has trusted him completely to take her through this journey. She's a 1st grade teacher and although I haven't heard her complain once about her situation, she's complained a countless amount of times about not being able to do what she loves, teach her students. Cherby has a big heart and anyone who knows her can attest to that.
I'm creating this page to help my sister, who has just been diagnosed with a grade 1 glioma on the thyalamus, with her impending medical bills.
For some time now Cherby has been experiencing weakness on the right side of her body. This promted her to seek medical attention, where she was then refered to a neurologist. After having a MRI done a few days later she was referred to a neurosurgeon.
On the 21st of September Cherby was scheduled to have a surgical biospy done. After they confirmed that it was a tumor, her surgeon then extracted as much of the golf ball sized tumor as he could. After the procedure was done Cherby lost function of the right side of her body.
With the help of physical therapy and her sheer determination to put in the work to get better, Cherby has gradually been regaining the function of her right side. Today she can walk and has recently been able to do so without the use of her walker. Cherby is also slowly regaining the ability to do task such as raise her right arm.
Cherby's recommened treatment right now is to focus on physical therapy so she can regain as much function as possible. She will also have to monitor the tumor's growth with MRIs. Our family would also like to send Cherby's medical records to Boston for a second opinion at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institution.
All funds raised will go towards Cherby's physical therapy, payment for her second opinion, and living expenses as she is now unable to work and is recieving only partial benefits.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, please donate generously if you can to help Cherby on her road to recovery. Our family would greatly appreciate your prayers for Cherby as well.
