Hey there everyone! First off thank you for taking the time and energy to read about Sara's campaign. I am one of four daughters, the youngest. Sara Eubanks is one of my older sisters next to her twin Mary. Sara is a single mother of 13 year old Clifton. She owns and operates her own make-up company, Unbreakable Beauty, that she has done wonders building HERSELF for the last 6 plus years. Not to mention, works full time bartending and helping at two restaurants owned by our brother in law. She has been extremely hard working all her life and has made a beautiful life for herself, son Clifton, and dog Taxx. The first weekend in June, we had traveled to our home town Tallahassee from where we live in south west Florida. Our purpose for the trip was to baptize our sweet two and half month old niece, on June 4th.Unfortunately, after rehearsal for the baptism and a quick lunch, my Uncle called uttering the words "it's Sara, it's an emergency." Mary (Sara's twin) was on the phone with our Uncle David handling the daunting uncertain news about our sister Sara, very calmly.... That morning, June 3rd, while sharing coffee and a bagel with our aunt and uncle Sara complained of a very terrible migraine. Suddenly, Sara's head dropped from her hands and she began to throw up. My aunt called 911. The EMTs couldn't tell what happened exactly at first response. Her blood pressure was extremely high but no definite signs of stroke. Fast forward two weeks, loving, painstaking, resilient Sara Eubanks is coming out of ICU after a long 11 day stay. Still in the hospital though, here at TMH. She had what they call "spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage", This is commonly due to an abnormality of the blood vessels within the subarachnoid space that has caused them to rupture and bleed on their own. The most common vascular abnormality leading to subarachnoid hemorrhage is a cerebral aneurysm, or brain aneurysm, but other vascular conditions can also cause subarachnoid hemorrhage. In Sara's case it was a brain aneurysm. Sara is extremely lucky to have been close to a hospital, not alone or sleeping at the time, and here in Tallahassee with some of the countries most groundbreaking Endovascular Neurosurgeons! Especially lucky. Statistics say, something like 40% of people die from these types of aneurysms. Neurosurgeon, Dr. Lawson was able to coil 85% of the aneurysm the ruptured within four hours of her arrival. There is a re-bleed period between days 4-10. Which, thank God we have exceeded now. Her latest CT scan showed her body is reabsorbing the blood. (Luckily they didn't have to operate or shave her head in order to drain the blood.) This blood causes a lot of pain as the spinal fluid with the blood passes through your spinal cord to slowly be absorbed. Most of her body is affected due to the nervous system. While Dr. Lawson was operating he found two more aneurysms. These additional two did not cause any of the bleeding, but going forward they will need to be addressed surgically. Along with the large oddly shaped aneurysm that ruptured near her brain stem; will need a more attention and a stint. Lawson says, Sara will have at least one more surgery. Most likely in 6 weeks. (if possible doctor likes to wait ample time due to radiation from last CT scan) To quote my mother, "we are not out of the woods, but we can see the light" God bless our mother who has had to watch all four of us all lose our father in February and now handle all of this with her own daughter. With that being said, this is going to be a long journey for Sara and all of her friends and family. We look to help Sara raise money to pay for medical bills, post op treatments, therapies, rent, car payment, utilities, and anything she has financial responsibility for her son etc. Anything helps!! Love and healing thought to all!!*** a little about her first procedure and doctor http://matthewlawsonmd.com/what-is-aneurysm-coiling/?gclid=CK3P4ZLRwdQCFYRBhgodWS0Ljwhttp://matthewlawsonmd.com/
