Nurse Darla Needs Help
A friend to humans and animals alike, Darla needs your help.
Some garbled words led to a brain scan that determined Darla had a 2" brain tumor. Sadly, her insurance is lacking because she took a break between nursing jobs. (3/21/18 Found out Darla has insurance! Update in comment section below.)
Born and raised in Ohio, Darla became a traveling nurse. After working several assignments in Deming, NM, Darla decided to become a "Demonite". She fell in love with the weather and the people. One day into her new full time job with Mimbres Memorial Hospital, Darla was given the news of her brain tumor. How could this be? Just 52 years old.
Long story short, Darla and her family are in need of donations to help pay medical bills, etc.
The good news.... Darla had her surgery and the tumor was removed in full. She is recovering much quicker than anyone could possibly have hoped for. It's going to be a journey of patience and physical therapy, but Darla is strong and her friends and family expect her to have a 100% recovery and return to nursing where she can continue to give of herself and get back to her favorite hobbies, dogs and golf!
“Hi Debbie, ... put this on go fund me if $50,000 is hit I'll shave my head and sister Sue Ann said the same”"
She has missed some work days and takes lots of naps when she can because of these treatments. They are really hard on her, harder than she remembered doing with her last cancer bouts.
Two more like this and then she’ll switch to lighter dose, weekly treatments.
Darla has been out and about but it’s clear she is tired. We recently went golfing and I grabbed a few shots to show you all her love for life. She is making the best of a crappy situation. Go Darla, we love you!
The bills are still coming in. Your donations and support mean so much to her. She gets teary when she speaks of the support.
Thank you all.
A note from sister Sue Ann:
“My sister went back to work Thursday, 3 days after a chemo treatment, and she is miserable. This chemo is wrecking havoc on her poor body and she doesn't complain or ask why me. She is simply happy to be alive, which we all should be. I'm 1600 miles away and feeling totally helpless. I'd just like to ask that you take a minute to lift my sister in prayer and also to be thankful for the life we have all been given!! Thanks all and remember to count your blessings!!!”
Don’t have the right words to tell you how much it means to me. Much love to you all ❤️❤️ Darla
