The family of Cindy Martin has teamed up to raise money as she recovers from brain surgery and undergoes treatment. Any little bit helps!

We all noticed Cindy wasn't feeling well around the middle of August 2010 when she just hadn't been acting herself. She seemed a lot less perky and a lot less talkative. Those of you who know Cindy know WELL that she is a talker. She began to realize something was wrong when the headaches on one side of her head continued to happen and she was tired all of the time.

After going back and forth from doctors who first diagnosed a sinus infection, we finally decided to take her to the ER on Friday, October 8th. Here is where the mass in her brain was found and Cindy was admitted to Fairfax Hospital where she underwent brain surgery on Wednesday, October 13th.

The surgeons removed more than 90% of the tumor, but the remaining will require further treatment including radiation and chemotherapy (pill form) as we hope to kick this thing in the butt!

She bounced back from surgery almost immediately - despite doctor's predictions that she would "get worse before she gets better." She was talking away just an hour after surgery and then discharged less than 48 hours after having brain surgery. She is now home and doing very, very well.

But, now the fight continues. Because Cindy is a hair stylist and works on commission she is unable to earn any income because she can't work at this time. Plus, with further treatment there will be further expenses.

On behalf of Cindy and her family we are asking for your help in raising money to help her with her living and treatment expenses. Any DONATION counts and we appreciate everything that is given. Thank you so much for your efforts, and for keeping us in your prayers. :)
