American Idol: Paris Tassin Audition

January 21, 2011 06:47 AM by Christine McDow

Paris Tassin has another one of those sob stories the American Idol producers are using to get America to fall in love with her. But how could you not? She had a special needs child at 18 years of age and stepped up to take care of her, which is more than you can say for much of the population. This 23 year old is much wiser and more responsible because of what she has been through, and may want this just a little more. Thankfully, she had the voice to match! Will she make it into the top 40 though? Click below to watch her audition video!

    I was brought to tears as I watched her audition. I, as well as millions of other parents around the world can relate to her story. My daughter has 4 brain diseases, one of them being Hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is due to a problem with the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the liquid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The fluid brings nutrients to the brain, takes away waste from the brain, and acts as a cushion.
    CSF normally moves through areas of the brain called ventricles, then around the outside of the brain and the spinal cord. It is then reabsorbed into the bloodstream.. Build up of CSF can occur in the brain if it’s flow or absorption is blocked, or if too much CSF is produced.
    This build up of fluid puts pressure on the brain, pushing the brain up against the skull and damaging or destroying brain tissues.
    When my daughter was born, her brain looked as if she did not have any brain matter at all, low and behold, she did…it was just smashed up against her skull due to the severe amount of spinal fluid that had accumulated in her brain.
    I do hope the back story does not become exploited, however, I do believe that Paris Tassin’s story can help raise a global awareness for a disease that millions of children and adults are living with, and suffering from every day.
    I am the President and founder of the Abby Marie Hope for a Cure, a non profit organization that aims to fund new research discoveries for better treatment options as well as a cure for not only Hydrocephalus, but many other brain diseases. I am hoping and praying that the world will take a moment to research just exactly why Paris touched the hearts of the judges, and how brave her daughter is.
