Mom's Expenses Due to Brain surgery

A couple weeks ago, my mother, Bernice, noticed that her left arm was not working correctly. Worried about a stroke, she went in and had an MRI completed.

There, they found a mass on the right side of her brain.

Then, on Tuesday, February 27th, my mother underwent brain surgery to remove a mass from the top of her skull. 

She is now home and recovering, but we do not yet know next steps for treatment, if there needs to be any. We do know that she will need to go to some physical & occupational therapy, but we are still unsure if radiation and chemo will need to occur.

Regardless, the bills are going to start coming in soon, and insurance & disability only cover so much. So, we are asking for some help.

Please consider donating some money so that we can ease the burden of the medical & everyday expenses during this time. Every little bit helps.

Thank you.

Bernice's son
