Via Mother of Ashlynn, Tesa Swindler.
My 11yr old daughter Ashlynn is such a beautiful, mature, caring, and loving young lady. She loves sports and enjoys basketball, cheerleading, hockey, and dancing.
Ashlynn had viral meningitis in March and during the hospital visit we found out she has chiari malformation aka brain slip. Ashlynn had an MRI of the brain and spine as well as a fluid flow study and we were told she has a syrinx along with chiari and will need brain surgery ASAP. She has been seen by a neurosugeon at CHLA and CHCC. We are trying to get a couple more opinions before doing brain surgery even though we know in the end result she needs it.
We recently had wrist bands made to support Ashlynn and raise awareness. If you'd like to place an order please let me know. One for $3 or two for $5.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and feel free to share her story. Prayer goes a long way. :)
Please connect on Facebook to get up to date progress and to learn more about the wristbands.
