Hope & Support For The LaMantia’s

My dear friends Joslyn and Jeremy LaMantia have wanted children for as long as I can remember. Jeremy and Joslyn were finally blessed with their first pregnancy in 2017 after about a year of fertility treatments because they weren’t conceiving on their own. Joslyn has wanted to be a mommy forever. Joslyn and Jeremy had their first child on Monday 6/18/2018, but it was not the fairytale birth and celebration that every parent hopes for. Joslyn had to be induced early (about a month) and during the preparation for induction, Joslyn began having severe breathing issues. She lost consciousness and she flatlined for 15 minutes. They were able to get the baby out within five minutes of Joslyn flat-lining. Both mom and baby are fighting hard for their lives. Joslyn remains in an induced coma to allow her brain and body to heal from all the trauma. Baby is also in an induced coma. Both mom and baby are stable at this time, but the prognosis is still completely up in the air at this point. Staying in the hospital in ICU and NICU for a day is insanely costly and both Joslyn and baby have been in the hospital about five days now. Doctors state this is a marathon not a sprint and they expect both Joslyn and baby will remain hospitalized for quite some time. Any financial support we can raise for this family would be such a huge help to them and take a huge financial load off of the shoulders of the family, especially for Joslyn’s husband Jeremy who should only need to focus on his wife and newborn baby, not finances. Anything you can donate is so appreciated by the family and all of their loved ones. I have known Joslyn my entire life (literally since the day I was born) she is my sister, not just my friend. I have known Jeremy now for over a decade as well and I know Jeremy or Joslyn would not do this for themselves, so I am doing it for them. Please donate what you can, anything helps. Thank you all!
