ER Nurse Danny Fighting for his Life against Covid

Greetings friends, colleagues and community members,

As many of you know, Danny is an Emergency Department nurse who has worked tirelessly on the front lines of the COVID pandemic for the last year. Now, Danny is in a battle against COVID himself. On Saturday 1/16/2021 Danny was put on a ventilator to give his body the rest and oxygen it needs to continue battling the virus. On Tuesday 1/19/2021, we were informed intubation was not providing enough support for his body. The process has been initiated for him to be able to undergo ECMO, a process where the blood will be pumped outside of the body to receive oxygen and be circulated, thereby giving his heart and lungs a break and the opportunity to heal.

Danny is a father of two children; those of us who know him know there is nothing in this world Danny loves more than his kids, Danny Jr and Unique. Danny is a devoted father, a good man and a great nurse. This campaign was created in an effort to ensure that his children are provided for and help alleviate the stress of a very long recovery process.

As he fights for his life, let us come together and help him fight. Help us show him and his family that we have his back, just as he has always had ours. No amount is too small and anything helps during this difficult time for the family. Thank you so much for your contribution and please continue to pray and keep Danny and his family in your thoughts. All proceeds will go to his family!
