Two months ago, our sister Tracey Rupert underwent aortic valve replacement and a triple bypass. While recovering from this surgery she was having some problems with her speech and her memory and finally went to seek advice for this on September 10. While the hospital was performing a routine MRI to find out the root cause, the Dr. uncovered a mass in her brain. She was immediately sent to Upstate Medical in Syracuse where the neurologists confirmed she has a Midline Shift in her brain caused by a Meningioma Brain tumor. She is to have brain surgery to remove the tumor in the next couple of days at Upstate. We are hoping that family and friends will donate and these monies will help Tracey while she recovers with every day expenses and medical needs. She has had a long few months of medical problems and this was absolutely unexpected. The road to recovery is a long one.
