Allison is the beautiful, 12-year old daughter of my best friend. Over the summer, they noticed she had scoliosis. Upon further examination, they discovered she had a Chiari malformation, a condition in which brain tissue extends into your spinal canal. This pressure on her spine is what caused the sudden scholiosis.

She had surgery for the Chiari malformation last month, and the doctors were successful in reducing the pressure on her cerebellum and spinal cord and restored the normal flow of spinal fluid.

In January, Allison has to have surgery for the scoliosis; she is currently at a 53° curve, and it's getting more severe each month.

Being that it is a new year, the insurance benefits will reset. I'm asking for help for my dear friend. Any amount will aid in this financial burden and allow this wonderful family to focus on what's important.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and for sharing this with as many people as possible.
