Tabby's Brain Surgery Bills

I've started this campaign to raise funds for my daughter Tabytha.  She has just recently had  brain surgery to remove a rather large brain tumor sitting on both frontal lobes.  A routine eye exam on Feb 23rd showed swelling in both optic nerves.  We were referred to a specialist who was seen on the 25th who ordered a CT scan on the 27th, the results of that scan came in that day with orders to go immediately to the ER.  Tabby was admitted into SLU hospital in Missouri.
