Angel and Alex met and started their lives together in 2013 they have their ups and downs but always came through strong. In 2014 they had their beautiful daughter Bentley she has been such a joy in everyone's lives making their family whole.
About a month ago Angel got sick and was diagnosed with pneumonia. Sadly the diagnoses was wrong as we later found out. Angel was rushed to the Carlisle ER after checking her heart rate at work which was at 160 BPM. When arriving to the hospital she was taking tests and given xrays to later find out she was diagnosed with heart failure. Till this day they still have no idea what caused it. Later on she was moved to Harrisburg Hospital and there they couldn't resovle anything and was transported to Hershey where she currently lays for the last 2 weeks. She went through surgery and they added an impella. Short description of what an impella is "Impella is a family of medical devices used for temporary ventricular support device in people with depressed heart function. Some versions of the device can provide right heart support during other forms of mechanical circulatory support including ECMO and Centrimag." With that being said when the Impella is removed and they see no progress she'll need a heart transplant. We're scared, worried, and all we can do is pray and take it one day at a time.
Meanwhile Alex and Bentley have been visiting as often as possible with a drive from Carlisle to Hershey. Depending on others generosity to go back and forth since they are currently without car and with very little money while Angel is off her feet indefinitely. Alex is a stay at home father and was hoping to start working while she's in the hospital but they're struggling with a baby sitter and there car recently broke down in the midst of this happening. It's been a struggle for friends and family alike. Everyone has been trying to help where they can but they could use all the help they can get. This is why were asking for any donations you can spare even a few dollars could be the difference between getting a visit together for this family and keeping momma fighting this fight daily. With Angel in the hospital for weeks already and weeks possibly months to come they will need money for even the most basic of necessities like food and utilities. Again, anything can and will help this family and it is much appreciated.
