Christa’s Brain Surgery


Fourteen-year-old Christa experienced a debilitating bout of headaches over the course of two weeks in 2008. She underwent an MRI and doctors found a cyst in the pineal gland region of her brain, in the exact center of her skull. Christa undergoes brain surgery, performed by neurosurgeon Dr. Hrayr Shahinian of The Skull Base Institute of Los Angeles, CA.
