Jessica Van Holland's Fundraiser!

Hey prayer warriors, 

We need you.

My cousin, Jessica, is going through a new journey in her life and we need your help.

So for about a year, Jessica had been dealing with weird spells, sporadically. She has been doctoring and trying to figure out what they could be. Her doctor ordered her to have an EEG and an MRI done.  After the EEG had come back normal, they focused on the MRI. The results of the MRI had a mass growth (called Astrocytoma) on the right side of her brain. They scheduled a meeting with a neurosurgeon and ordered many different tests. The result of those tests showed three more little spots around the inside of her brain. She saw three different neurosurgeons at three different hospitals and found one that made her feel at peace and ready to tackle this thing!

Jessica's post from September 22nd, "Update: We just met with the neurosurgeon in mayo. We were very impressed with him. Very smart and very comfortable to talk with. He's done over 2000 surgeries and said his goal is to get 100% of the tumor out but with the way the tumor is curved around a blood vessel he may only be able to get 95% . His plan than is to do a procedure called proton therapy which targets radiation only to the area where tissue remains that he couldn't get. Surgery is tentively set for next Friday the 29th. In God I trust. His plan is always the perfect one, I feel that this is where God is calling me because it gave me the most peace of mind. (Fearless)"

Today is the day, September 29th, Jessica is having her surgery to remove the tumor.
