A young girl from Texas, suffering form a rare disorder, is preparing for a life-changing surgery.

Six-year-old Jessie Hall will have half her brain removed next month at Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore.

Hall has flown from her home in Aledo, Texas to Maryland to ready for the surgery, WJZ.com reports.

She suffers from Rasmussen's encephalitis, a rare illness that eats away at the brain and plagues its sufferers with seizures and reduced mobility.
