Lisa Moran Battles Brain Disease

I need your help.  As if stage iv lung cancer isn't enough, I've been diagnosed with an ultra rare, incurable, progressive, brain disease called Moyamoya.  1-10 in a million are diagnosed with MoyamoyaDisease.  Because I was at a high risk of stroke, I opted to have a brain bypass surgery to return blood flow to my brain. The surgery was successful.   But days later I did suffer a hemorrhagic stroke and was admitted to an acute rehab facility in California.  

I should have only been in the hospital for2-3 days after the original surgery. I ended up in the hospital for a total of 33 days including pre-op testing, brain surgery, emergency brain surgery and the acute rehab.  Insurance does not cover missed wages, out of pocket medical bills or household expenses. I have exhausted all my sick leave from work with lung cancer treatments and appointments.  With this Moyamoya and stroke journey, I am left with no paid time off.

Your donation, no matter what amount, will relieve me from worrying about not having enough money to live and  pay bills while recovering from the stroke.
