I'm trying to raise funds, even if it's a dollar at a time to help her pay for her medical care.

Recently Jessi had a violent seizure for which she went to the emergency room. It was then that the doctors found she had a brain tumor that was bigger than a golf ball. She had brain surgery, but have since found that it was not completely removed. After two weeks she still has not received the pathologist's report and does not yet know what further treatment will be necessary (ie radiation, chemotherapy, etc). Jessi does not have insurance and also has to take time off from her job for recovery. She also suffers from ulcerative colitis and has to take daily medication, which is hard to pay for without help from insurance or her usual income.

Status update - she is still off of work and no word from the pathologist yet as to what it is. They know they did not get it all and have to wait to determine further treatment (ie chemotherapy, radiation, etc).

Status Update - Jessi did find out that it is cancer. Unfortunately this means she has to undergo an additional surgery and radiation. For the time being she has to wait and is not released for work. I'm still shocked that she's managed to wrack up $115,000+ in medical bills and still hasn't been treated yet!

Status Update - So her cancer is technically Antiplastic Epyndemoma. Apparently a rare form and she just happens to have an aggressive tumor. Today she's having her second brain surgery where they need to remove the rest of the tumor to give her the best chance of fighting it.
