For 3 years Danaisha worked as a lead teacher at Once Upon A Time Development Center in Milford, CT. This influenced her to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education, which she completed May 2017. The unforeseen medical diagnosis of her son led her to resign from her position and put her career on hold in order to prepare for baby Alex's HLHS journey.
After Danaisha gives birth to Alex he will have to undergo a series of three surgeries. The first one will take place at Boston Children's Hospital during his first week of life. Danaisha, her husband and two children will have to temporarily relocate to Boston while Alex has his surgery and recovers. At minimum they will have to stay in Boston for a month, but the full duration of their stay cannot be determined. However, we are hoping for the most successful outcome for baby Alex.
Donations will be going towards room and board, food, toiletries, travel expenses, and parking.
The family appreciates any and all donations during this difficult time. To learn more about HLHS please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/heartdefects/hlhs.html
