Love and Support for Tracy's brain tumor surgery

My name is Tina Stanton and this is a go fund me that I never thought I'd ever be writing and I really wish I didn't have to.  It's for my best friend of 26 years, Tracy Leftwich.  Let me start by telling you a little about her.        Tracy loves her family and always puts them first, especially her 3 year old grandson, whom she has custody.  She loves bass fishing and is a member of Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF) and she qualified for the KBF national championships her first 2 years as a member.   She also loves her job as a local lumber truck driver.  Tracy is a giving and tender hearted lady who helps the people in her life all she can,  even when she doesn't have the means, but she always some how makes it work.       On July 19th of this year Tracy was diagnosed with a golf ball sized brain tumor called a meningioma, that is pressing into her brain stem and is wrapped around 3 intracranial nerves.  Her neurosurgeon told her that she needed brain surgery to remove the tumor and that the surgery is very complicated with a minimum recovery time of a of 3 months.       Since the diagnosis Tracy has only been able to work 2 days and  her neurosurgeon has recently written her out of work until after her recovery from the surgery, which is scheduled for October 14th.  She has been out of work for over a month already and will be out of work for at least 4 more months.  As a result, Tracy and her family are in great need of financial help for house hold bills, medical bills and travel expenses.  She will have numerous medical appointments for the next 4 months in Roanoke Va. which is an hour and 20 minutes from her home.        I know there are some people, and maybe many people, that are reading this that know or have known what it's like to have more bill's than money to pay them and the stress it can cause mentally and physically.  Tracy is dealing with this financial stress coupled with the stress of fighting this tumor which is wearing on her.        I am asking for your financial support for my best friend Tracy to help alleviate some of the stress of her financial burdens. Any amount you can give will be very helpful and greatly appreciated!  If you are able to donate, or even if you cant,  please share this Go-Fund-Me and say a prayer for Tracy.   Thank you very much! God Bless!                                                                       Tina Stanton
