Sarah is to undergo her fourth surgery next week at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, FL. She was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation in November 2012. Sarah has endured 3 painful surgeries with each surgery revealing yet another hiccup along her road to recovery. 

In May of this year Sarah discovered she had developed Hydrocephalus, after having a shunt (with complications) put in her head to drain the fluid off her brain into her stomach. She now faces yet another surgery in hopes to help her regain strength in her arms that is rapidly declining.

Sarah will be having surgery on her spine next week at Shands in hopes of improving her medical condition for good and it is our hope that she will be healthy and strong again permanently when this surgery is over. 

At this time, it is not certain whether her employer can provide “sick pool” hours for all or even part of her recovery which is a minimum of 6 weeks. If they cannot, she will forgo paychecks for this period. 

Expenses for travel and room accommodations for Sarah and Emily (who will be accompanying her during her surgery) and her initial recovery period also have to be considered.

We hope that you will contribute whatever amount you can to Sarah. Contributions can be made to Emily, Malinda or Linda.

Linda Medina can be reached at email lcso352@gmail.com.
