Because of the hormones that were present during pregnancy, the tumor grew faster than normal. We are viewing this baby as a miracle for so many reasons. The tumor could have gone undetected for a longer period if it were not for the pregnancy.
Thankfully, the tumor did not negatively impact her brain tissue! It burst within itself which was the source of the bleeding in her brain. The family is giving God all of the praise for the miraculous way that this unbelievable situation has unfolded.
Milk donations from close friends have been sustaining the baby so she has not missed a beat on those vital nutrients. Support for Brandon, her husband, has been abundant. Her two year old son is well taken care of and looks forward to his mom coming home.
Kassandra and Brandon were expecting to spend these first few weeks with their baby and young son. Those plans have been turned upside down. The family has several immediate needs and are planning for the needs of the immediate future.
1) Transportation Cost/Hospital Parking
2) Care for the Baby
3) Meals for the family
4) Assisting Kassandra's mother with transportation to/from Colorado
Immediate Future Needs:
1) Costs Associated with Rehabilitation
2) Supplemental Income to Offset Financial Strain
3) Continued Care for the Baby
Any help you are able to give is more than appreciated. We are believing for a full recovery for Kassandra. We want her to know that her family is well taken care of while she is healing and recovering from birthing her baby and enduring brain surgery.
Update: Some people have inquired about using CashApp. Brandon's CashApp username is BrandonXjohnson.
