Our mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor and needs to have very expensive surgery and treatment ASAP! Please help our family financially.

My mother is an extremely health conscious individual; she has never smoked, she eats very well, and always looked after her physical fitness.
She was starting to have seizures in her jaw about 5 months ago and was seeing a non-traditional doctor about it. She went to The Hershey Medical Center on Friday because she thought it would be best to take the financial risk rather than wait to figure out what was wrong and they found a mass in her brain which we recently discovered. We will know exactly what we are dealing with once they can actually take a biopsy of the tumor itself, i will keep you all updated as i know!  She needs to have surgery right away and then will need extensive treatment. They are very hopeful that with this method she will be 100% better in a few months and should live a good, long life.
She has worked in disability classrooms while balancing two other jobs, but our family is not where it needs to be financially to conquer this challenging time. She does not have health insurance because it is too expensive and while my dad is covered by the veterans’ hospital, it does not cover his spouse, even though they have been married for 40 years. She has always done everything in her power to give me and my brothers a great life, and she deserves to have the funds to keep her house and pay for these steep medical bills.
My mother is such an important and influential person in my life; I’m her only daughter and I talk to her everyday. I don’t want her to miss out on me getting married or graduating college, or even getting my first real (big-girl) job. I’m confident that this isn’t her time, but we need some help in the financial area to make this true. Every little bit counts and with the help of many people, the goal isn’t that far out of reach! If you are able, please donate to the cause.
Thank you so much for your help and support for my family!
