Neurosurgeon/Skull base surgeon at Saint Barnabas Medical Center
Professor of Neurological Surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.

Our doctor, is the best of the best and he’s only done 30 in 14yrs. He’s a head and neck specialist. His team consists of 3 surgeons and 2 pre-surgery specialists.

We are scheduled for an embolism on February 11th prior to surgery on the 12th. It’s about 8hrs.


We’ve rented an Airbnb from May 5th until June 4th and airline tickets. 

The costs are only mounting and it’s really quite unreal when you write it all out.

New surgery date - May 14th

This delay has caused a LOT of craziness… even more than before. Due to airline cost changes and the availability of places to stay relatively close to the hospital things are getting more expensive.


Masks, T-shirts and Hoodie sales - Thank You!


We want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read this far. 

This is one of those times where one of those who serves everyday needs a little help herself.

If you can’t afford to contribute we completely understand. If you could just share this page with others you know, that would really be helpful, more than you know.
