We all know who Star Lyte is, right? AKA, Tiffany. Mother of three who works from home. Star was also a cabaret singer turned show producer as of early September. She had reoccuring migranes causing extreme pain and finally decided to go in to the emergency room just to make sure everything was alright. After doing imaging, the on call doctor came back in with frightening news, they had found "something" but wouldn't really explain what. In the coming weeks, Tiffany was admitted into Christain Hospital, where they then explained she had a menengioma (tumor) on the left frontal lobe of her brain, and were going to transfer her to Barnes Jewish Hospital in Saint Louis for futher testing and treatment. Once in Barnes, they went back and forth on what it was or could be. One day it was a tumor, the next it was a lesion, the next it was a migraine. It became a confusing cycle of uncertantity. With her condition worsening, she became unable to work. Seziures began occuring, cerebro spinal fluid leaking from her ears, dizziness, nausea, memory loss, ect. All has taken a huge toll on her physically and emotionally. Finally she received an answer; She herself got to see the imagaing for the first time at her most recent Nuerology appointment, and what the she was told was that it was NOT a tumor, but a cluster of malformed blood vessels IN her brain, not on it. Surgery would be risky because of the location if they were to do it, could cause her to loose almost all mobility, motor skills, and speech on the right side of her body. She is now under "wait and see" treatment. She is currently taking a massive amount of pills including injections. No amount of pain pills seems to work. Her hair has already started falling out due to the types of medications that she's on. They want to put her in the hospital for a month just to monitor her. That's how bad her brain condition is.
During all of this, she also received news of a possible malignant tumor in her left breast. Whilst at Christain Hospital, they performed a routine mammogram just as precaution and found a mass in her breast which is now being monitored and a biopsy will be done to determine the state of the tumor. Right now, we're just afraid for her emotional health, physical health, and plain afraid for her in general. We are running this online benefit for her and her 3 daughters to help cover bills for the time that she has been out of work due to her health. She will be out for sure for another month because of her "watchful waiting" treatment and then indefinitely when and if they decide to do the surgery. Her babies mean the world to her and she always gives to them before she gives to herself. She has given herself 100% to anyone that has given to her. I feel that it would be great if those she has given to, would be able to give back to her. Thank you for giving a helping hand!
