Shelbie Ross will be traveling to New York City this month for a six-hour surgery to remove a tumor that is sitting on her right optic nerve. Now, friends, family and neighbors are mobilizing to help Ross cover the costs she will encounter as a result of the brain tumor, called a Suprasellar Meningioma. Doctors expect the tumor to be non-cancerous, but if it is not removed quickly Ross could lose her vision.
