Our mother was diagnosed with large and hyper-intense meningioma “A meningioma is a tumor that forms on membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord just inside the skull. Specifically, the tumor forms on the three layers of membranes that are called meninges. These tumors are often slow-growing. As many as 90% are benign (not cancerous).” She is scheduled for surgery on the 12th of April 2021. We will also be needing 4 bags of blood for her surgery. Her surgery will be done @PGH. Please include her in your prayers. This pandemic made it difficult for us to move and gather enough funds. We are knocking to your generous heart. Her name is Aurora also known as “Ka Auring”. Our father left us 8 years ago and our mother was left to our care. We mistakenly thought her case was silent stroke or dementia due to the symptoms we have noticed. It was only after CT scan and MRI it was confirmed as meningioma. It is already large in size and surgery is the only way to cure it.
