Kerrie Mone, a local single mother was just starting her final college class towards her degree when she was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with a brain tumor.
After being admitted to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital she was faced with a difficult decision. She could stay at Brookhaven where her insurance covered all of her medical expenses. Or transfer to Stony Brook where she would receive much better care and a better chance at a full recovery but also not receive full coverage from her insurance.
After consulting with doctors and her family she has been transferred to Stony Brook. Her friends and family are now trying to raise money to help her cover her medical expenses and recovery.
Kerrie is a loving mother of a beautiful teenage daughter who will now have to put off completing her degree until next year. She has sacrificed everything for her family and now needs all the help she can get.
