Hello! My name is Carmen Casasola and I am a proud mom of four beautiful children! I have been running my own daycare for the past 24 years but have since had to stop due to my diagnosis of a rare pinealoma brain tumor. This journey for me has been an experience that my family and I never expected but it truly helped show our unity and strength as a family. I was diagnosed with a rare pinealoma brain tumor on February 18th and proceeded to have surgery the following week. While this was not an easy endeavor and was scary to go through, I have completed my treatment and came out stronger than before! Please help me support Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance's great cause! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too. Together, we can make a difference! Thank you kindly.
