23-year-old Destiney Julian is in the fight of her life against the Aussie Flu (H3N2 Virus).
She first fell ill while celebrating Christmas and New Years with friends in Wales. Due to health complications caused by the H3N2 Virus—as well as a severe case of Pneumococcal Pneumonia—she was admitted to the ER in Wales and later transferred to the ICU at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London (the largest heart and lung medical center in the UK).
Destiney is currently on a Ventilator and ECMO Machine (used on patients suffering from severe respiratory failure), and is under heavy sedation.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Destiney has been in the ICU for over one week now and while her doctors say she is making small strides everyday, it will take time and the support of her family and friends for her to make a full recovery.
