Superior, CO

Christiana is a single Mom raising her 12 year old Daughter Ayana. She just finished taking her Bar Exam after graduating Law School in Boulder, Colorado. The Bar Exam requires three months of intense study. She won't find out the results until October. Law School and studying for the Bar Exam are big enough challenges, but that's not the whole story for Christi. Ayana has had a heart murmur ever since birth. A few years ago, Ayana started having dizzy spells and trouble walking straight. She underwent surgery to implant a pacemaker. That has made a big difference for her, but other things have happened since that could possibly be related. Ayana was having migraine headaches and was on medication for that. However, she began having other issues, possibly from side effects associated with the medicine, that caused her to be hospitalized for a week in June. Through it all, Christi was able to balance her her study and caring for Ayana, but could now could really use a vacation.
