22 year old Tiffany Foster was just like a lot of other college students, balancing classes at Gulf Coast and a job at Olive Garden.
That is until November 1, when Tiffany woke up with a migraine headache and vomiting.
She was also weak on the left side of her body.
Doctors at Gulf Coast Medical Center found fluid on Tiffany's brain.
They sent her to Bay Medical Center.
"In just a few hours at Bay Medical they did nero-surgery on her and didn't find anything except there was fluid, apparently later found out, caused by a clot in her vein," said Tiffany’s aunt, Tammy Tindell.
Foster was air-lifted to Shand's Hospital in Gainesville, where doctors performed two more surgeries the next day.
The good news is Tiffany will recover.
She is back in Panama City in rehab, but it is going to be a long process.
"She's been really high hopes, she saw a picture of herself yesterday where I'd done the flyer and she said she missed her hair,” said Tindell. “But she's doing really good, her hopes are high and she's looking forward to going back to school before the semester's over, are her thoughts."
The Foster family has organized a benefit fish fry this Saturday at the Springfield Community Church from 11am to 2pm.
They are hoping Tiffany can forget about the financial issues, and concentrate on getting her life back on-track.
