Holly was recently diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation Type one, a rare neurological disease. This requires a team of neurosurgeons and professionals that can decide the best course of action and perform brain surgery to give her a life back. She has many varied symptoms including: speech and language issues, attentions, trouble sleeping, as well as may other symptoms. Of the host of symptoms, her language being affected is the worst. She is trapped in her own world quite often being able to hear muddled and painful noise but not able to process that what she is hearing is often speech. This receptive language fault has caused an expressive language issue as well - she can't always tell you what is going on and has word finding difficulties (called anomia).

Holly is an amazing girl who needs a team that is familiar with this rare disorder and can decide what course of action is best. To do that we need to raise funds to get her there as provincial health care will not fund her to go out of province.

She cannot get the help in our own province as the neurosurgeon dismissed the evidence without even trying to chat with my daughter. He did not know much about Chiari and felt in our 15 min appointment that she was not worth following up with. It was heartbreaking for us as we had such hopes that we could deal with this at home.

Thank you very much for your help -- With it will can conquer Holly's Chiari and give her a voice.
