The 39 year old wife and mother of two young boys was working out at the gym and had a seizure. She was rushed to the hospital and had a CT scan and MRI which showed a brain tumor. She underwent brain surgery a few days later and we were told it was cancer. Our hearts were broken.
She met with Roswell a few days after the surgery and pathology confirmed it was Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma, a rare form of Brain Cancer. The Lymphoma Team at Roswell told us there is a 60% cure rate but because Tara is young, fit, and healthy they are very optimistic.
Tara begins her rigorous 19 week long chemotherapy regiment January 22nd. Unfortunately due to intensity of the treatment she will be required to be hospitalized every other week for her chemotherapy. Each treatment will cost her thousands of dollars out of pocket.
Tara, her husband Rich, and their two boys, Colden, 8, and Anthony, 4, are an amazing family. Tara is a caring and dedicated Physician Assistant that has been treating and helping patients for over 15 years. It is now our opportunity to give back and to her help and her family with the medical expenses they will have to endure. We are asking for any monetary donation to help ease the cost of her medical treatments. Prayers are always welcome as well!!!
For those of you who know Tara personally and as my best friend and co-worker she has an incredibly warm heart and would do anything for anyone. She has an awesome attitude and continues to say, with a smile on her face, “I got this!” Let’s help her GET THIS!!!
We thank your in advance for your continued support and generous donations. We truly appreciate and love each and every one of you!!!
