Hi, my name is Lecia and I’m fundraising for Christina who is my loving wife, but is also a loving mother, daughter, sister and friend.
Christina has been hospitalized for the last 10 days and have underwent multiple operations, experienced a few complications, and have received unexpected and devastated news. Yet she is hopeful and is a fighter.
Theres no better way to explain the what than to give you a timeline of events
In December of 2021, Christina had been experiencing abdominal pain and was rushed to ER but was diagnosed with gastritis.
2/2-2/4 Christina was admitted to the hospital because her leg was swollen and was diagnosed with DVT, there was a blood clot in her right leg. Surgery to remove said blood clot could not be performed because of confirmed pregnancy. She was placed on blood thinners to prevent future clots.
2/23 Christina went to the gastroenterologist and she ordered her a emergency abdominal ultrasound.

The physical, financial and emotional costs are extensive, unexpected and are far beyond what we hope many people would imagine. Donations would help ease stress on this new journey. Donations will cover treatments, medications, doctors visits, household and hospital bills, nutrition, and other related expenses.
If you are unable to give anything at this time we ask that you share our story and keep us in your prayers.
We appreciate the outpouring of love, prayers, and support shown over the last few weeks and undoubtedly in months to come.
