Fundraising for 2nd Brain Surgery

I battled leukemia when I was just 18 months old, through treatments of Radiation and Chemo I was able to pull through.  It was a rough time for my mother and family but it allowed me to grow into an amazing 37 year old woman. By being exposed to radiation, two meningioma tumors developed in my brain. The Neurosurgeon removed most of the 1st tumor in 2016 but after a recent MRI, he said it is starting to grow and recommend another surgery to remove 1 or both tumors. Due to the many medical bills that are piling up, it would be greatly appreciated for any donation toward these surgeries. 

After the surgery I will need a lot of recovery time to re-learn eating, walking, talking and returning to eveyday life. With being unemployed, funds have been few and far between for myself and my husband. I am asking for your support at this time of need along with the amazing support and care from my family, loved ones, friends, neighbors, and the wonderful staff at the Hospital of UPenn.

I don’t know if more surgeries will be needed in the future but I am keeping a positive attitude and faith. Please pray for me as I face my next tumor surgery.
