Help Nurse Susi to beat Hemangioblastoma (brain tumor).

Susi is a nurse in Bandung, Indonesia who is currently struggling with 3 brain tumors inside her small brain. Susi used to work in Bali for more than 7 years before she decided to go back to Bandung to take care of her mom who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

Susi started to feel a massive terrible headache at the end of May 2020. After trying to manage her headache for several days with OTC medicines for pain, she decided to see a doctor. After several visits, she ended up being admitted to the hospital because her headache just got worse and worse. After performing the CT-scan and MRI of the brain, the doctors found 3 tumors in her cerebellum (small brain). Even though the tumors are benign, but their location caused increased cranial pressure that resulted in Susi having an emergency VP Shunt procedure to release the pressure (it causes by the accumulation of fluid inside the head; medically called hydrocephalus).

The location of the tumor itself is a high risk for Susi to undergo brain surgery. The surgeons suggested Susi have a gamma knife procedure that is very expensive and not covered by the Indonesian National Health Coverage (BPJS). The gamma knife treatment will cost Susi IDR 200,000,000 (USD 15,000) and her salary and saving as a part-time nurse cannot cover the fee for her ongoing treatment.

Currently, Susi is incapable to work and her friends are trying to fundraise money in order for her to start the gamma knife treatment as soon as possible.

Your little kindness during this difficult time really means a lot and creates a huge difference for our beloved nurse and friend, Susi Sumaryati.
