Introduction ~ Crystal Wolshin
Crystal was born and raised on the island of Kauai where she continues to live. She was a sophomore in high school when she discovered she had a brain tumor. The doctors were shocked at the size and complexity of the tumor, they gave her approximately 6-8 months to live. Within four days, Crystal was flown to Oahu, where she had her first open brain surgery. The doctors discovered that she had one of the rarest types of brain tumors, cancerous and aggressive.
Over the last 10 years, Crystal has had many surgeries, from leading brain surgeons and neurologists in the nation, one being the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. In addition to brain surgery Crystal has undergone two different forms of chemotherapy treatments. She has suffered daily from seizures, emotional, and physical problems. Crystal having been hospitalized numerous times is a living testimony to her faith in God and her desire that God would use her to bring people to the savior Jesus Christ. Crystal’s life calling is that the people she meets and her loved ones would come into a living relationship with God through his son. Her strength to survive can be attributed to her faith in God, her loving family and friends, and her "never give up" attitude. Truly a walking miracle, Crystal loves life and loves others as she is constantly putting others before her and is always more concerned of the suffering of others before herself.
