*updated*  Beth has always worked two jobs - however - in early December 2018 one of the attorneys at the lawfirm she worked at told her "if you're having seizures I can't have you here"... two weeks later she was let go - the Friday before Christmas.  She was not told why.  She was told only that she had 5 minutes to gather her things and leave and and never come back.   She rarely ever took a sick day even with the diagnosis of a brain tumor and lesion, which causes her to have severe vertigo and balance issues, seizures, headaches and fatigue.... 


In 2012 she even donated one of her kidneys to someone who needed it!  To hear her say it, "it was the right thing to do.  And, I had an extra one anyway."   She's always one to make people laugh.  Beth also co-hosts a monthly open-mic called Nerdy By Nature at Amalgam Comics in Philadelphia.  

    She has been battling migraines since age six and was diagnosed with epilepsy a few years ago.  Now she is facing a recent diagnosis of a CORTICAL DYSPLASIA LESION and a LOW GRADE GLIOMA (brain tumor).  Which was actually discovered in 2014 on an MRI taken when she had a stroke.  However it was not disclosed to her until  June 2018 when she began having serious issues.  Someone dropped the ball big time!
     
       I really can't see a better option than to rely on the generosity of the many people who's lives she's touched to help her gain the hope she so desperately needs and deserves.

10/2018 spectroscopy. I start with a new Nuerosurgeon on 2/1/18 - let’s hope he takes this out of my head so I can get my life back and get back to working.

Friday 12/22/18 I was let go from my job by a man I didn’t even work for. The man who told me that I had 5 minutes to collect my things and leave and that I was never allowed on the premises again had told a me a few weeks before - when I was recovering from a seizure- “I can’t have you here if you’re having seizures”. He is half owner of the building. The man I DID work for was the other half owner. It’s been Merry Christmas anyway because I have both of my children with me and Scott and the cats. I don’t know what will happen now but I appreciate all you now more than ever. merry Christmas - love, B

Just a quick heartfelt thank you while Beth is fast asleep. She’s not one to get mushy but I am! these past few weeks have been amazing! The support from friends and strangers alike is awe inspiring. The show at Amalgam comics has left Beth speechless. And that’s a feat! Earlier she poked fun at a Kiley Jenner post on the Lost Pinups page to make people laugh and the responses have been amazing. We are feeling pure love and support from you guys in a way I didn’t know was possible. In typical Beth fashion we went to the ER on Thursday night for a severe migraine and seizure activities. Upon walking in while in immense pain, Beth noticed a young woman near the door in a summer dress with no coat, freezing cold. Before I could get her checked in she had taken off her sweater and instructed me to give it to the young lady. Then once we sat down she sent me to the vending machine to buy the lady snacks and a drink! That part may have been slightly selfish since she knew I’d buy her a Reese’s cup! LOL. Even when she’s down all the support is letting her still be amazing. I love her and I thank all of you for caring.
