This is the James Ingalls Fund. The funds will be used to help the Ingalls with their bills while James is out of work.

My friend James has a condition called Chiari Malformation. Chiari malformation are structural defects in the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance. When the indented bony space at the lower rear of the skull is smaller than normal, the cerebellum and brainstem can be pushed downward. The resulting pressure on the cerebellum can block the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (the liquid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord) and can cause a range of symptoms including dizziness, muscle weakness, numbness, vision problems, headache, and problems with balance and coordination.

Recently James had to have surgery because the symptoms were becoming increasingly difficult to manage. The type of surgery requires a long rehabilitation and limited activity while in recovery which can be very frustrating when you're used to doing being able to do normal everyday things.

Because of the long rehab, James has been unable to work and with a family to support the need for financial assistance has become necessary. Please consider giving from your heart any amount that you can give. Thank you and God bless!
