On September 4 Izabella Lamb at age 13 suffered a stroke. The stroke affected the Left Temporal Lobe of her brain. The Left Temporal Lobe of the brain controls the movement of the right side of the body, holds the language and memory centers of the brain, hearing, and visual recognition of objects and people. All of these have been affected for Bella. On day one the physician’s prognosis was that Izabella would, likely, not speak again and may not walk or use her right arm. None of these things are true for Izabella.
Bella has been working tirelessly and making gains beyond anyones' expectations! However it has been 5 weeks since this life changing event and there is still much to be done for Bella to get some semblance of herself back. That is 5 weeks that Amy (Bella's amazing mother) has been out of work and many more weeks to go. I'm certain this story will eventually have a happy ending, but in the mean time this family needs help.
