Helping raisie money for Teresa Vanperson while she battles she brain tumor.

My name is Ashley Max-Dixon, I am fundraising money for Teresa Vanperson. Teresa is a good friend and amazing bus driver to my young children. Teresa is also a mother/ grandmother, who has custody and is raising her two young granddaughters ages 2 and 3.

Teresa had been battling what she thought was just an ear infection after several weeks of seeing her family doctor and various antibiotic she was referred to a specialist. After going thru testing and being sent off for an MRI. The doctor entered the room with devastating news she had a tumor on her brain that is growing. If left alone she will go blind, begin to suffer seizures, strokes and eventually the tumor’s pressure will kill her. It is no option that she must have brain surgery to remove the tumor, unfortunately the surgery itself has many risk on its own, not to mention the lengthy recovery time from the surgery.

Teresea has been a bus driver with Groveport for the last 11 years. She does training for the bus drivers and monitors of the special needs children for the district.Teresa currently is still a bus driver but the surgery and recovery time will have her out of work from April until at least June if not longer and there will not be any way to fix the hardship she will be going thru financially and mentally. I am currently trying to gather gift certificates or products and begin a raffle to help gain donations to help Teresa and her little girls during this hard time.

I am asking if you could please donate so that we can present her the day before her surgery with the monetary donations to her fund. The hope is to relieve the stress, worry and hardship she has before she begins this massive intense surgery April 9th at 7:30am at Mount Carmel.

I appreciate your time in giving to the Teresa Vanperson Fund, and for taking the time to read this letter.
