"Kristie Richardson is recovering from brain surgery, after she was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation Type 1. Chiari  is a defect of the brain or skull, that causes a crowding at the base of the skull and a variety or neurological symptoms.

For the mother of four from Aurora, her symptoms began earlier this year. "I was falling a lot. I had lost my hearing in my left ear. My eyes felt like they were pushing out of my head because I had so much pressure," she said. Her short term memory was so bad that one day she couldn't remember the way home from work."
