Jennifer's 2nd craniotomy

28891146_15229526370_r.jpegJennifer was diagnosed with Astrocytoma of the right frontal lobe during an MRI (for a different reason) which led to the first of two craniotomies in April 2012. She found herself out of work for 6 weeks with her pay cut significantly.   She was out of work later that year for six months while she went through radiation every day for 6 weeks.   She resumed work and managed to pay back an excess of $30,000 in medical bills with NO help.  

Now six years later she has undergone a second craniotomy to remove the regrowth of tumor.  She is estimated to be out of work at least 12 weeks this go round.  Maybe indefinitely. Because of the tumor she has been diagnosed with seizure disorder along with anxiety, chronic migraine disorder, PTSD, neuro cognitive deficits, and a list of others.  

Her friends and family have insisted she have help this time with medical bills and living expenses.
