https://www.youcaring.com/ashleyhorvath-879540.  That is the link above if you can donate to her fundraiser. I am doing this fundraiser to get help for my family. My daughter woke up in feb 2014 with a very bad headache. She went back to bed and woke with her face drooping and eye twitching. I took her to the er and that is where this long year battle of trying to figure out what was wrong with her. We finally found out that she pseudotumor cerebri which is IIH along with the movement disorder that makes her tremor in her arms, feet and hands. A pseudotumor is a fake brain tumor. She has all the symptoms that someone with a brain tumor has. She gets whooshing sound in her ears. Eye problems, pressure and pain in head along with the tremoring of her body. She has had 4 lp surgeries with her last one to remove the lp shund cause it was broke. She has had two brain surgeries for the vp shunt that is suppose to drain fluid off of her brain and drain into her stomach. She will be having another surgery to replace the vp shunt. Currently she is in shunt failure and has a MRI friday to see whatelse is going on in her brain that the dr could be missing. She cannot work and currently is waiting on social security. I was working and got fired due to my daughter having emergency surgery because she was leaking spinal fluid and it needed to be fixed. Last week she had her 40th lumbar punctue (spinal tap ) to lower her pressure in her brain. It helped for a couple hours and then all of her symptoms came back. . We cant seem to get ahead. We could really use help with food, gas , bills and some other things. . If you cant help please just pray for Ashley. PLEASE IS ANYONE CAN HELP US CLICK ON LINK ABOVE or BELOW IF YOU CAN DONATE. THANK YOU  https://www.youcaring.com/ashleyhorvath-879540 .
