For those of you who do not know what Chiari is, then here is a quick update...Chiari I Malformation is when the Cerebellar Tonsils have dropped out of the skull cavity. This can lead to terrible headaches, dizziness, body aches, poor balance and a multitude of other symptoms. I am amazed at how many people suffer in silence from Chiari. I only heard about it 2 1/2 years ago. I want more people to understand this disease. I want more funding so that more doctors understand this disease. We went to 2 different neurosurgeons, and I knew more about it than they did! Take a minute and check out our links page. These links are both good resources.
Brooke's journey with Chiari began when she was almost 2. And will hopefully find a happier ending this summer.
