Shannon’s Brain Cancer Fund

My sister Shannon was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago. She underwent a bilateral double mastectomy with lymph node removal. A year later, she had to have a hysterectomy due to the cancer. She has since experienced several difficulties with reconstruction surgery due to getting pseudomonas. Sadly, cancer is rearing it’s ugly head again showing up in her lower spine and she now has a brain tumor that is 3 centimeters bigger than a golf ball. She is having craniotomy/ brain surgery next week. Then radiation after because the tumor has attached itself to a vessel they can’t remove by surgery.

Shannon needs to stay in the hospital for several days and then she must rest at home. She is unable to work and unable to drive for an extended period of time.
I have created this GofundMe account as I know these upcoming weeks will be extremely difficult for her both financially and emotionally. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

All of our prayers and thoughts are with Shannon during this time
