Thank you in advance for helping us in this struggle. My husband and kids deeply thank you.
In 2013 my husband and I married. Then we lost my father, not long after in January 2014 we found out we were going to have a baby. The next month February first I woke up in extreme pain in my left ear with vomiting and vertigo. I called 911 and was rushed to the hospital to find out I had a brain tumor at 9 weeks pregnant. My family was forced to make tough decisions about me and my baby. My baby David and I survived a tough recovery in which I learned to walk eat drink and daily duties to take care of myself again. The surgery removed most of the tumor but a portion was left behind. It also left my left side of my face paralyzed. I had a gold metal placed in my left eye so I could blink and I have had injections in my vocal cords to help me speak. In April of this year I under went another surgery to reanimate my face. I am here now in Houston Texas at MD Anderson to receive Proton therapy to kill my tumor so "we can get on with our life"says my good Dr. My husband is left at home to work and pay our two homes. He is remodeling one while we live in another. The cost for us to come out here is beyond our means. Family has pulled some money to get me started but I have to recieve 33 treatments which puts me out here until august 3. So I will have to stay here another month. We need help with paying my living expenses and whatever my insurance does not cover.
