My dear friend Andrea underwent brain surgery last Tuesday, January 22nd for the removal of a tumor in her brain. The diagnosis was sudden after she experienced a seizure the week prior. After several scans, it was determined that brain surgery would need to be done to remove and determine the type of tumor that was in her brain. In the week between the scan revealing the tumor and surgery being scheduled, Andrea experienced more seizures and complications in speech due to where it was located in her brain.

Andrea’s surgery was successful and the neurosurgeon was able to remove the tumor. The pathology report came back with a diagnosis of primary central nervous system lymphoma. Further tests revealed that it had not spread to her bone marrow. Next steps consist of 5-6 chemotherapy sessions that will take place over the next several months. Each session will be in the hospital for 2-3 days followed by a week and a half recovery time at home.

Andrea will continue to need the support of her family and friends to help navigate down the long road of treatment and recovery she has ahead of her.

For those that know Andrea, you know her as I do: the most selfless, beautiful, kind, loving, full of light person that would do anything for anyone. Now it is our time to give back to her…

I am starting this fundraiser so Josh and Andrea can receive assistance to lessen the burden of the financial hardship they are going to incur so they can focus on the priority at hand- getting Andrea well!

Thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers and any contributions you are able to provide. Every tiny bit helps.

Thank you so much!!
