Brain Tumors and a Love Story

with Jamie & Crystal Fairles

images-1It took two brain tumors to make a love story. What an appropriate interview for this Valentine’s Day weekend! It was unlikely that Jamie and Crystal would have met had they not each suffered a brain tumor. But they did have brain tumors and they did meet . . . with a little help from their friends. An email relationship began, which eventually led to their engagement and some years later Jamie and Crystal were married. They now share their love with their toddler as they walk the road of brain injury hand-in-hand.

08 Jamie Fairles 10966701_785893851446166_2004498939_nJamie was first diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1998. That surgery lasted 13 ½ hours. He had 3 more surgeries before he was released, but he was not able to walk or talk and had to relearn those skills again. By 2005 Jamie had undergone 7 brain surgeries.

05 Crystal Fairles 10967058_785893721446179_257216402_nCrystal’s brain tumor was diagnosed in 2008 when she suffered a gran mal seizure. After her brain surgery, she was released from the hospital with little direction and permission to return to work. But the stress of her job was the catalyst for additional seizures.

If Jamie and Crystal hadn’t each had a brain tumor they would never have met. They are glad that they met and are happy to share their “love” story.
