My Story

To follow the progress of Talitha on her valiant journey: www.talithablack.blogspot.com On December 23, 2009, 16 month-old baby Talitha had an MRI to see if they could find out why she was beginning to lose her balance when walking. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you want to look at it), the scan showed a substantial brain tumor that was causing severe hydrocephalus. She was immediately transported to the Primary Childrens’ Medical Center (PCMC) where she underwent a 6 hour operation on Christmas Eve to remove as much of the tumor as possible and get a drain in her head to release the built up pressure. She was in the Pediatric ICU for 10 days and then in the Neuroscience Trauma Unit for 4 more days. Praise the Lord for the life-saving miracles that have been granted as a result of so much fasting and prayer by so many concerned family, friends, and neighbors. Talitha is fighting so valiantly and is SO positive even at such a young age. To meet sweet Talitha, visit www.talithablack.blogspot.com
