Varsha's Adenocarcinoma Journey

Hello! I am starting this campaign for my dear friend Varsha. She is not only one of my best friends but also a wife to Bryan & a stay at home mom to their two boys Boone (5) & Bodhi (6 months). Varsha is the most positive person I know & is an inspiration to me to be more like her. She was gifted by God with the sweetest disposition & a kind soul.  She is loyal, a great listener, the best friend anyone could ask for & a wonderful advisor. I say all these kind words not just for show, but because they actually describe the kind of person she is.
Varsha went to the ER on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, due to extreme dizziness & instability walking. She had gone to her doctor the previous week & was told she may have Lyme Disease. She was scheduled for tests on February 12, 2018, but her symptoms worsened & she couldn't wait any longer. She was admitted to the hospital when it was discovered she had a severe case of Pneumonia. She was still experiencing dizziness after she was given IV fluids for dehydration. An MRI was ordered along with numerous other tests. The results were not good. She has 2 tumors on her brain; a large one near her brain stem & a smaller one behind her eye. To say we were all blindsided is certainly an understatement! She will undergo surgery on Monday, February 12, 2018, to have the tumor by her brain stem removed. This obviously is a very serious surgery which will require a lengthy post-op care for Varsha.
She has a great support team to rally around her which will be a great asset to the healing process, but she & Bryan will need monetary help. I am asking for donations to help with medical bills, lost wages & living expenses for the next several months. Please feel free to share this campaign to help get the word out. No amount is too small. Thank you in advance for anything you are able to give!
