We are raising money to purchase prosthetic devices for John AJ Brailsford. On 2.11.18 AJ was suddenly admitted to the ER, after suffering flu-like symptoms for 2 days. He was immediately given a blood transfusion and placed on life support. AJ was diagnosed with a standard strain of strep pneumonia, complicated by septic shock. The strep somehow went from his throat into his blood. After being in a medically induced coma for a week, AJ fought off the infection and is recovering from sepsis. On 3.9.18 AJ had his right arm and part of his left hand removed (to prevent further infection). The doctors continue to closely monitor AJ’s feet. Mariam is at AJ's side as he recovers in the Emory University Hospital ICU. We greatly appreciate your support.
