Bethany's Brain Surgery for Stage 4 Tumor - Acoustic Neuroma
Organized by: Jesia Boykin
Bethany Portillo, a kind hearted, sweet and loving 21 year old student, needs your help in raising money for her Brain Surgery. Bethany will owe over $100,000 (that is the cost left after insurance). She wants to get her CMA to ulimately become a Nurse to help serve those that are sick in the world. She has a BIG Heart! She will need this surgery and your help to accomplish her goal. If left untreated, the tumor (because of its size) will continue to grow and will ultimately leave her with facial paralysis and impaired speech or even no speech. After many sleepless nights Bethany and her father researched and traveled to find a doctor that would perform her surgery. They ultimately found a Doctor that she is comfortable with and one that performs the brain surgery in a way that will less likely cause facial paralysis and impaired speech. We need your help to raise money for her surgery as she and her father will have to endure a lifetime of medical bills that will take a lifetime to pay back. Thanks for your caring consideration in this fundraiser as you will have a chance to change the course of Bethany's life. With this surgery she will have a great chance to live a better life and also live out her dream to become a Nurse. If Bethany were writing this, she would be so humble and would just say "thanks for caring about me!"
