I am helping raise money for medical expenses and any other expenses that my brother & sister in law need help with.  To make sure they are able to focus on Shannons health. Any help is greatly appreciated!

On november 2nd shannon went to the hospital for bad headaches she was having. They ended up doing an mri on shannon and found a mass on her brain. She was then sent to the University of minnesota where she was admitted and for further tests. Saturday the 4th, they ended up doing a biopsy on Shannon. She was finally able to go home monday, november 6th.  On friday the 11th, Shannon was diagnosed with stage 3 astrocytoma. Tuesday november 14th, Shannon will under go surgery to remove the tumor. She hopes she can go home by saturday to be with her family. She will also start chemo and radiation after she recovers from surgery.  Shannon will have a minimum of 6 week recovery and will not be able to work and help provide for the household and  two boys. Leaving Joe a sole provider for the household and the boys. Joe is a truck driver and might have to take alot of time off to be with his wife and kids and take Shannon to doctors apointments. Shannon has a long road ahead of her,  she will have to be put on chemo/seizures pills for the rest of her life might have to under go more surgeries down the road. The doctors will try to remove as much of the tumor without doing to much harm to Shannons brain.  She will have alot of apointments  and recovery time. Any help is greatly appreciated! We will also be doing a benefit if anyone would like to help or donate that would be great! Joe and Shannon will need all the help and support we can all give them.
