My wife has a tumor in her brain. They are in the process of finding out what kind of tumor it is, but they believe it is cancer. They've done the CT body scan. On the 19th of October 2018 they are going to do an MRI scan of her brain. Then, they will be a brain biopsy to determine whether it's cancer or benign. The tumor is quite large. slightly bigger than a walnut, and either way, whether it's benign or cancer, they are going to have to remove it from her brain because it's causing too many problems. It's affecting her eye sight (she's gone blind), her speech, and she can't even keep food down anymore.
Up until a couple months ago, she had medical insurance, but when she had to resign from her job as a lecturer at university, she lost her medical coverage. Therefore, we need to get as much money together to cover these first procedures, to cover the MRI and the biopsy.
My wife is 58 years old. She has worked hard all her life. She has been a fantastic wife and my best friend for over 23 years.

Zainon's condition is getting worse. She no longer seems to be aware of the things going on around her. She does not or cannot respond to any questions. It is like she just isn't there anymore. Don't know what to do. Feel helpless. At this point I don't know if

A couple of days ago, the hospital informed me that they intended to send Zainon to either HKL or Hospital Ampang. Today, however, I was informed that the doctors at Ampang, after looking at her MRIs and biopsy, decided that the cancer had spread too far in her brain and. . . . .

Zainon had about 50% of the main tumor removed yesterday. The doctors could not remove the whole tumor because they could not tell where the tumor ended and the brain began. So, they are waiting for the results of the biopsy and then they will decide the best way to

Today, the 17th of October, my wife will undergo a brain biopsy. Doctors say it can take up to two weeks to get the results. She has gotten so weak, I do not think she will last the two weeks. Hopefully, the doctors will ask for the results to be
