      This girl has a life threatening condition that is causing her to eat herself to death as a result of a surgery to remove a benign brain tumor. The military won't pay for the only thing that might save her - gastric bypass surgery - because she's under 18. Please donate so her family can pay for this surgery on their own. Thank you!
