My mom was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor caused convulsions, right-sided paralysis, and a loss of speech and swallowing. She recently underwent a surgical procedure to have the tumor removed and analysed and is still in the hospital. My dad is a retired police officer who has minimal healthcare coverage, and my mom a homemaker. In this tough economic situation brought about by the COVID -19 pandemic, our jobs disappeared, including my own as a guide for tourists on safari. Our incomes and savings have dwindled and this most recent diagnosis of a brain tumor has been devastating. On behalf of my mother, my father and our family, I am appealing for financial support to help with her treatment and healing.
