Nikki Mobley Brain tumor support fund

Nikki is 8 years old and was found to have a large brain tumor in her frontal lobe.  She has had trouble in school and has been held back which they now believe to be because of the tumor.  Nikki has been experiencing bad headaches and is not able to concentrate.  It has effected her peripheral vision and her memory.  From the MRI they have done they cannot determine if it is cancer or benign.  Either way, it is a long haul for a little girl to go through. 
 The doctors in Tallahassee want her to go to Shands in Gainesville, FL for a 3 day EEG to determine seizure activity and also do a functional MRI to determine if the area will affect her speech when removed.  This is scheduled for the beginning of April and from there things will move fast.   Once removed, she will be in the hospital and  need her mother to care for her during her rehabilitation. Nikki's mother will be out of work for a month, maybe more.  
That is why I am asking for donations to help this family.  Nikki's  mother works an hourly job as a pool cleaning technician.    She has faced great odds in her life and has become a successful single mother of three young children, 8,10 and 13. But now she faces this hurdle to keeping a roof over their heads.  She has no extended family to help except her oldest son who is 19 who will be helping babysit the other kids while his mother is out of town.  He was planning to work in the day but now with school out indefinitely they will have to pay for childcare or he will have to quit his job to watch the younger kids. They will have to drive to Gainesville multiple times during this process and will need gas money and emergency car repair funds.  Please donate to help with regular monthly living expenses such a rent, utilities, insurance, gas, and other incidentals.   This family has come so far and needs help to make this happen so this little girl can have a chance at a full recovery.  No family should have to worry about basic survival when going through this type of stressful medical process.  46247006_1584489466836675_r.jpeg
