In November 2009, Lindsay Ripley was diagnosed with a simple ear infection. Despite having gone deaf in her right ear because of "it" - an MRI showed no abnormalities and her family moved on, accepting the diagnosis.
The following September, however, she began having trouble eating - nearly losing her ability to swallow, as well as suffering severe neck pain. These symptoms lead to another MRI, where a rather large tumor was found attached to her jugular nerve, underneath her brain. Nicknamed "Cletus" by Lindsay and her family, this rare tumor has a 1 in 1.3 million chance of appearing in adults over the age of 50, even less in young adults, and only 3% of those appear on in the head. But Lindsay became that one.
10 years later, Lindsay still fights for her life every single day. Lindsay is one of the most genuine, compassionate, down to earth people I have ever met. She's changed my life and inspired me in more ways than I could ever pay her back for. As Lindsay's health has decreased, the hospital stays are increasing and with that, the medical bills are too. This campaign has been re-established with high hopes to round up the troops again as this war continues to try and tear her down, I'm determined to get the army reunited to help her up.
If you can't give financially.. Give prayer. Give hope. Give love. Give this a share so we can spread her story. Anything helps.
Armor up, friends. Let's help ease the burden of this battle in every way we can.
