Hahn Family Fund

For the past few months, my sister Laura has been commuting between Garden City and Kansas City to endure vigorous testing to find out if she is a candidate for a brain surgery that could potentially prevent her from having seizures in the future.

For her whole life, Laura has dealt with the repurcussions of a debilitating disease, epilepsy. Finally a light has shone at the end of the tunnel and she is seeking the opportunity to eliminate this obstacle for the rest of her life. 

She will check into the hospital at KU Med on August 1st at 5:30 a.m.. Then, if all goes according to plan, her neurologist will remove the lower left part of her skull, 4x4 inches, and put an electrode strip on her lower templar lobe. Then they will drill 6-8 electrodes into her frontal cranium. Next, she will be taken off her medication and they will monitor her seizure activity. She will be there for approximately two weeks. 

There is a risk of speech, memory and vision loss. They are performing this test to see where they need to operate and to test if she is certainly a candidate for this procedure. They will not operate if there is potential for her to become a mute. 

To quote her directly, "I wouldn't wish seizures on my worst enemy. It's the most terrifying experience in the world and I don't want them anymore."

Laura and her family have already sacrificed months of their lives to testing to see whether she is a candidate for this surgery or not. Now, they are looking at sacrificing two months worth of work to this testing, and they are in need of financial assistance to ensure their own stability after Laura's procedure. 

Every little bit helps, and our family will be eternally grateful for your contribution.

Thank you and God bless.
