>I know I sound a bit like a broken record, but here we go.
Remember Holly? Well, things have gotten a bit more urgent now. The tumour is growing and muffling sound, and threatening to snap the auditory nerve, the only thing between her and complete deafness. Picture a marble pressing down on a noodle of angelhair pasta. How long will it take before the angelhair noodle snaps? I remember playing with sheep’s brains in neuroscience, and oh my those nerves are thin. I remember snapping the spinal accessory while just trying to touch it.
There is no estimated time when her hearing will go. It could be months, it could be tomorrow. Please help, if you can.
To all those who have helped, it’s working. She has $6000 now. But she needs $60000. So let’s go! You can donate to her fund or buy raffle tickets, or you can buy a shirt. Hmmm the shirts. It would have been better if she had gotten shirts about her own cause instead of leftover shirts from her friend’s fund-raising endeavour, but I think her options are quite limited. So if you can help in any way, via donating or spreading the word, please do. If she goes deaf, she will be deaf and blind and raising a baby. I don’t mean to make it sound like I pity her, but if we can prevent her from having to adjust to total deafness after adjusting to total blindness, why not? The ability is there to save her hearing, she just can’t afford it. It’s kind of like dying of thirst and being too short to reach the water fountain. Let’s lift her up so she can take a drink!
