Jessica Santaniello is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Erica Santaniello.
As many of you may know, my sister, Erica, has been dealing with complex medical issues for the past 9 years or so. This past year, however, has been exceptionally tough. My sister spent 3 months at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. During this time, she underwent an extensive stomach/ intestinal reconstruction due to an obstruction, as well as countless tests, doctors' appointments, and procedures. Next week, Erica is heading back to the Mayo Clinic for an unknown period of time. She will be facing another procedure and may be having another extensive surgery in the near future. As you can imagine, the expenses have added up. The hotel accommodations alone have exceeded $10,000 so far. Though Erica has been in the hospital a lot of the time, my parents have been staying at a hotel on the hospital campus. This does not include airfare, the medical bills, car rental or other travel expenses. Any donations would be greatly appreciated- no amount is too small. Let's help get Erica healthy so she can get back to her normal life that a 24 year old should be living! Thank you everyone from the bottom of mine and my family's heart. Much love and appreciation!
