Organized by: Robin Wroten

THE STORY:

Jessica has Trigeminal Nueralgia, a condition that causes constant chronic pain that affects the Trigeminal, or the 5th cranial nerve. This is a debilitating condition, and has kept Jessica down or asleep for years. It started in 2009 when Jessica began to have pain in her jaw, that soon moved to her temple. The pain was excruciating causing her to become ill and dizzy. A friend called 911 and she was quickly taken to the hospital. After the doctor assessed the situation, he decided to do a CT scan. The results showed two masses in her brain, with the largest one hemorrhaged. She was then referred to a doctor at The Brain and Spine Institute of North Houston. The doctor there looked at the CT scan and determined that one of the tumors has grown into the Trigemenal nerve and was putting pressure on the brain stem. After the tumors were removed, things began to look up. Drug therapy was introduced, which she is still on. When medication was not controlling the pain, the doctors proposed to implant a stimulater to help manage the pain, and hopefully lower the dosage of her daily medications. Over the next few years Jessica and her husband, Dennis , have 3 beautiful children.  Jessica is waiting for orders for surgery.  She will have to travel to Oregon, as there are only a handful of doctors in the US that do this procedure.   The surgery is a necessity, so that Jessica can care for her family.
