Sylvia Ruhland Medical Fund

Vibrant Sylvia was experiencing debilitating headaches throughout the end of March and beginning of April. Her pediatrician recommended an MRI, and during that procedure on April 16th, medical staff detected a brain tumor.

Sylvia was transferred to Children's in Minneapolis that day, and underwent her first brain surgery that night. A second surgery was performed two days later on April 18th to remove the tumor.

On April 19th she received a diagnosis of Medulloblastoma, a cancer that affects the brain and spine. Sylvia will undergo treatment in the coming months.

Please pitch in to help cover the extensive medical costs involved with these procedures. By easing some of the financial burden for this wonderful family, we can allow them to focus all their attention on helping Sylvia get better.

Thank you for your gift to the Ruhland family to help pay for Sylvia's medical care. No goods or services were provided in exchange for this gift.
