As a school we have started a Go Fund Me account for the Paul family. Mrs. Paul is our Spanish Specials teacher and 3 of the Paul children go to our school. This is their story..
Our twelve year old daughter Leah was recently diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called NF2 (Neurofibromatosis Type 2). NF2 is a condition in which benign tumors spontaneously form on nerves inside the body. These tumors can target any nerve, but the nerves most often affected in NF2 patients are the vestibular (balance) and acoustic (hearing) nerves in the inner ear.
Leah had surgery to remove a golf ball sized tumor from her left vestibular nerve on August 31st. Toward the end of the 10 hour surgery, the surgeons noticed her brain stem was swelling. They performed a CAT scan and found 2 epidural hemotomas that had occurred during surgery. One of which was very severe. They performed an emergency craniotomy to relieve the pressure on her brain and brain stem. However, Leah sustained significant damage and stroke from this traumatic brain injury and we very nearly lost her. However, due to her great toughness and the immediate prayers of loved ones, Leah is still hanging in there and currently remains in Primary Children's Hospital.
If you would like to help support this wonderful family the Student Council has set up a Go Fund Me Account. Thank you.
