Paige Arnold's Medical Fund

My name is Kellee Tinker.  I'm Paige's mom.  She was recently diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation Type I.  This means the base of her brain is herniated into her spinal column.  This herniation causes the cerebral spinal fluid (CFS) to back up in her head causing severe pressure headaches, along with other symptoms, that are not relieved with medicine.  Her pain level most days is enough that she cannot get out of bed.  When she does get up, she usually has worse headaches later in the day.  She is currently unable to go to school because of the pain.  We would like to send her to a neurosurgeon in Texas who specialized in decompression surgery.  Decompression surgery is when part of the skull is removed so CFS has room to move freely.  
I'm asking for help with the cost of the operation, travel costs, and her hospital stay.    Thank you for your time and caring.
